1/2 pound dry brown lentils
3-4 large onions, chopped
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup long grain rice (brown ok)
salt and pepper, to taste
cumin, to taste
1. In a 4 quart pan, boil lentils in 2 quarts of filtered water. Saute onions in the olive oil, until completely browned (really and truly brown, which will take until the lentils and rice are done).
2. When the lentils begin to get soft, add the rice and spices; cook until the mixture is dry.
3. Pour the onion mixture over the lentils and rice and let the oil seep down through the mixture. Try not to stuff yourself.
