ingredients
  • 120 gr (4.2 oz) of brown basmati rice
  • 120 gr (4.2 oz) of precooked/canned lentils
  • 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil
  • the zest of ½ orange
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 pinch on salt
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 sprig of rosemary
how to
  1. Cook the rice, adding a bay leaf. You can find instructions here. I have my beloved rice cooker.
  2. Rinse the lentils thoroughly. Place the olive oil, the rosemary sprig, the orange zest and the garlic clove (peeled and lightly crushed) in a small pot. Heat over low heat, but don’t let it boil, when you see the first hint of a bubble turn off the heat and remove the pot.
  3. When your rice is ready mix it to the lentils and season it with the scented oil.
