Brown Rice and Lentils

Segment featured in: 
Eating Healthy on a Budget

Olive oil
2 tablespoons onion, finely minced
1 clove garlic, smashed
2 cardamom pods, smashed
1 small stick cinnamon
1 bay leaf
1 cup brown rice, rinsed
½ cup brown or green lentils, rinsed
3 cups water
Salt

Heat the olive oil on a medium-high flame. Sweat the onion and garlic until soft and translucent. Add the spices and stir. Add the rice and stir to combine with the onion and spices. Pour in the water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes. Add the lentils, stir and cover again. After about 20 more minutes the liquid should be absorbed and the rice and lentils cooked through.

Note: Spices really enhance the flavor of this dish, but you can substitute or add the spices you fancy.
