Lentils Rice Spinach

Lentils Rice Spinach Recipe

Lentils Rice Spinach¼ cup olive oil

¼ tsp salt

¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper

2 cups diced onion

1 medium tomato, cubed

4 cups chopped fresh spinach leaves, packed down

1 ½ cups cooked rice (½ cup/125mL uncooked rice)

2 cups cooked green lentils

1 lemon, cut into wedges

In a pot or large skillet, heat oil over high heat for 30 seconds.  Add salt and pepper and stir for 30 seconds.  Add onions and stir-fry for 2 minutes until softened.  Add cubed tomato and stir-fry for 1 minute. 

Add all the spinach at once; cook, turning over several times, until spinach has been reduced to one-third of its volume, about 1 minute. 

Reduce heat to medium-low and add rice and lentils.  Stir-cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until well mixed and everything is piping hot.  Remove from heat, cover and let rest for 5 to 6 minutes as it develops flavor.  Serve with lemon wedges on the side.
