    Egyptian Rice and Lentils

    Source of Recipe


    1 c brown lentils, washed and picked over
    3/4 ts salt
    4 1/2 ts olive oil
    1 lg onion, chopped
    1/2 ts cinnamon
    1 T cumin, ground
    1/2 c rice
    5 to 6 cups water

    Place the olive oil into the bottom of the crock pot. Turn the
    pot onto the highest setting and add the onions. Allow the onions
    10-15 minutes to warm in the oil. Add the remaining ingredients,
    including the water. If cooking the dish all day, reduce heat to
    low, otherwise leave on high setting. Cover. Leave to simmer.

    Stir the dish while in the crock. If it is dry, add a little water.
    If it's soup-like, remove lid for a little while, or turn heat to
    high setting. Serve. It's tasty as a main mean or as a pilaf to
    accompany other meals.
