Lentils with Rice / Fakorizo


Though this dish may have once been considered a poor mans meal, today it is an Island favorite and very easy to prepare.


1lb. dried lentils salt and pepper
1/2 lb. rice olive oil
3 onions, chopped  

In a large pot, simmer the lentils in salted water. When they are almost done, add the rice and the salt and pepper to taste. Add enough water so the rice doesn't stick, but you want the mixture to be thick. When it's done, remove from the heat and set aside.

In a large skillet, heat enough olive oil to cover the bottom about 1/2 inch. Add the onions and sautι until golden brown. Pour the oil and onions into the lentils and mix well.

Susie's Note: In the Islands we serve raw onions - spring or dried, olives and smoked herring or 'Renka' as an accompaniment to this dish.
