Prep Time 5 minutes Cook Time 25-30 minutes Serves 4-5     adjust servings



  • 3/4 cup green lentils
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup wild rice
  • 2 cups finely chopped onions
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 T olive oil


In a small saucepan, add the green lentils and water.  Bring to a boil, then turn down, cover and simmer until all the liquid is absorbed. Set aside.

Cook the rice according to the package instructions. While the rice is cooking, add the onions, garlic and oil to a large saute pan. Cook the onions down for 5-7 minutes, or until they look caramelized.

Once the onions are caramelized, add the lentils and cook together for 1-2 minutes.  Once the rice is done, add it to the saucepan as well.  Lastly, add the sea salt to taste.
