Spanish Lentils and Rice (T&T)

I got this recipe from the back of a package of lentils. It's easy, cheap, and good. I often substitute 1/2 can diced canned tomatoes for the fresh tomatoes. I usually serve with cornbread and coleslaw.

Recipe Ingredients

1 cup lentils
2 cups water
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup rice (basmati is very good)
2 medium tomatoes, coarsely chopped
2 cups chicken broth
Salt and pepper, to taste

Method

Prepare lentils: Rinse and sort lentils. Cook lentils in water for 20 minutes. Drain.

Prepare rice: Sauté the onion and garlic in the olive oil until onion is translucent. Add rice and sauté until rice is translucent, stirring frequently.

Prepare final dish: To the rice mixture, add lentils, tomatoes, and broth. Bring to a boil, lower heat and partially cover. Cook for an additional 30 minutes or until rice and lentils are tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Yield: 6 cups
