      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.

      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

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

      Prepare rice: Saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil until onion is translucent. Add rice and saute 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
