“Sue’s Mujadarra”

Mujaddara is the Arabic word for “pockmarked”; the lentils among the rice resemble pockmarks. The first recorded recipe for mujaddara appears in Kitab al-Tabikh, a cookbook compiled in 1226 by al-Baghdadi in Iraq.

This is a great way to use up a couple of cups of leftover rice

Fry 3 chopped onions in olive oil until they become caramelized, about 15 minutes.

Remove ½ the onions for serving.

Add one pressed clove of garlic to the pan, along with about a tsp of cumin, coriander and bay and a pinch of allspice and however much chili sauce or cayenne pepper you like.

Add one rinsed and drained can of lentils and 2 cups cooked rice.

Give it all a good stir, then add in 3 big handfuls of fresh spinach or a package of thawed frozen.

As soon as the spinach is heated through, serve with the remaining fried onions and some yogurt.
