RICE AND GRAIN DISHES:
(Lentils & Rice With Tomato Sauce)
1 1/3 cup(s) uncooked brown or white rice.
1 1/3 tablespoon(s) vegetable oil, divided.
2/3 tablespoon crushed garlic
1 1/3 can(s) of tomato sauce (16-ounce)
1/3 cup(s) water
1/6 cup(s) vinegar
2/3 medium onion
Cook rice according to directions. Rinse lentils and put them
in a pot, covering them with water and bring to a boil. Then
simmer on a low heat until almost all water is absorbed and lentils
are well cooked. Add extra water if longer time is needed.
To make the sauce, first sauté the garlic in 1/2 of
the oil until golden. Add all of the tomato sauce and simmer
10-15 minutes. Add water and vinegar and bring to a boil. Remove
from heat immediately and add salt to taste. Finally, slice onion
in thin, small pieces and sauté in the remaining half
of the oil until brown and crispy.
The dish should be arranged as a layer of lentils (on the
bottom), followed by a layer of rice, then another layer of lentils
and another layer of rice. Sprinkle the onions and the sauce
on top before serving.
