2 tablespoons ghee or coconut oil
2 onions, chopped or sliced
1½ cups cooked French green lentils
1 cup cooked black rice
salt to taste
1 scallion, chopped
In a very large skillet, heat ghee or oil and sauté onions until very caramelized and browned, 20-30 minutes. If the skillet starts to dry out, just add a tablespoon of water. You may need to do this a couple of times.
When onions are irresistible, toss in cooked lentils and rice and stir until just warmed through. Season generously with salt Garnish with the scallion.
This recipe is so simple, it's worth the wait to let the onions really brown and develop their flavor.
“For me, there is something nostalgic about recipes that use fresh berries. Maybe it's the style of desserts, but they all make me think of state fairs and church picnics.”
