So...I'm 43 and pregnant with #3 - how'd that happen?
Lentils and Rice with Caramelized Onions and Mushrooms - adapted from "Vegan Planet"
1 C dried brown lentils, rinsed
2 T olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
half dozen (or more) mushrooms, sliced
1 large clove garlic, minced
1 C rice
3 C water
soy sauce, S&P, other seasonings to taste
Partly cook lentils in water to cover, boiling 15 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Heat 1 T olive oil in skillet over medium. Add onions, mushrooms and garlic and cook to lightly brown. Remove 1/2 of the onion/mushroom mixture and set aside.
Add lentils to the remaining onions/mushrooms in the skillet. Toss in 1 C of rice and 3 C water. Herbs/seasonings also added at this point. Bring to a boil and cook, uncovered, 20-30 minutes (I find it takes closer to 20). Remove from heat, cover, and let sit another 10-15 minutes.
In a second, small skillet - heat remaining T of oil. Caramelize the reserved 1/2 of the onion/mushroom mixture.
Place rice/lentils in serving dish and top with caramelized onion/mushroom mixture.
