Rice and lentils stew … رز و عدس او مسلوعة


I love to make this dish, because it brought back lots of childhood memories, especially when my grandma used to make it for us. I like to call it stew because it is thicker in consistency than a soup. So delicious and easy to do.

Ingredients :

  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 1 cup red lentils washed and drained from water
  • 1/2 cup short grain rice
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • Salt to taste
  • About 3 cups of water

For garnishing:

  • fried onion, chopped parsley and lemon wedges


  1. In a big pot, sauté onion and olive oil until translucent .
  1. Add in the lentils, rice, cumin,turmeric and salt, stir to combine.
  1. Add water, cover and let cook on a medium low heat until smooth and tender.
  1. Turn heat off and serve the stew garnished with parsley, pomegranate jewels and lemon wedges
