When it comes to wanting a cozy meal with a Middle Eastern flair, there’s an easy way to make a delicious, mouth-watering meal….

Lentils and rice are one of my favorite meals. They’re nice and simple to make, plus nutritious so it’s a win all the way around.

To start, you rinse the lentils off and sort through them to make sure there aren’t any small rocks mixed in. Then you put them in a pot with water – with plenty of room for them to expand – and boil them until they’re soft.

Meanwhile, you sauté onions, garlic, and celery together, dice up some carrots, and then add them to the cooking lentils. Add some cumin, salt, pepper, and any other seasonings that sound good, (ginger is one I like) and enjoy!

They taste delicious on their own, or on top of rice, or paired with flat bread and dill pickles.

      Ah yes, I knew that about salt, but I didn’t know that’s where the word “salary” came from – pretty cool! 🙂
      And yum! I think I’ve had French Onion Soup and enjoyed it if I remember correctly.
