Mujadara: Lentils and Veggies
1 Cup Lentils
1/2 Cup Cabbage
1/2 Cup Red Pepper
1/2 Cup Mushrooms
1/2 Cup Eggplant
1/2 Cup Spinach
1 to 1 1/2 Cups Veggie Broth (water)
1 Teaspoon Cumin
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Pepper
1 to 2 Tablespoons oil
Dice the onions into small pieces. Heat the pot on med-high heat. Add 1 to 2 Tablespoon of Oil and 1/2 an onion. Cook until onion is caramelized.
Add lentils, veggie broth (water), salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
After 10 minutes, add veggies (except spinach) and 1 Teaspoon Cumin. Cover and simmer for additional 10 minutes. Add spinach at the last minute.
You can add 1 Cup Rice.
I used cook lentils so I didn't cook for 20 minutes. I cooked lentils and the veggies for around 10 minute (added the spinach last)
I just used whatever veggies I have.
I used a bunch of spices that I have until I liked the flavor.
