Great! Made with quick Farro instead of rice and steamed lentils (both from Trader Joe’s)

Delicious! I didn’t believe the directions when it said the simple flavors were enough, but they really were. The only substitution I made was swapping brown rice for converted. (Following doctor’s orders.) The onions took longer to caramalize for me than the directions said, possibly because I used an iron pot. Just be sure to plan for this possibility because it took me fifteen minutes longer than the recipe said. Either way, if you enjoy subtle Middle-Eastern flavors and a high-fiber dish, you won’t be unhappy with this recipe.

I put too much oil. Other seasoning really makes it pop.

very tastey. i cooked the lentils about halfway and then add it to the broth with the dry rice. The onions gave the broth a sweet taste but i couldnt help myself when it came to add turmeric and cumin with a dash of curry. really yummy

Yummy. I did make the rice and lentils separately. It took forever to caramelize the onions. My family loved it. Made with the salad. So good. Not a good as my dads but still yummy

Made this dish twice with months in between in case I messed up the first time. But both times it came out dry. I used brown rice this time but kept the rest the same. The dish was okay.

I love this dish! I keep it in my recipe box under the heading "Cheap" because it is so inexpensive--it's a real budget saver at the end of the month. Those caramelized onions are so good; I always want more no matter how many I've made (tonight I used four yellow onions). I use my cast iron skillet heat on 4/10 and cook those babies until they're brown and sweet. With a generous amount of salt in the lentils, this dish hits those salty, sweet, and carb cravings all at once. Thanks, Kaylyn!

I used a few different ingredients (brown rice and red onions), and it turned out alright. I may not make this again.

It was delicious but I altered the recipe by adding garlic, Tamari Sauce and roasted sunflower seeds to the rice. I also seasoned the Lentils with garlic, salt, and pepper. And I used vegetable broth to *sauté my onions in (no oil). // *To sauté vegetables in water or broth, you just need to add a little water at a time. They will caramelize just as they would using oil.

Not bad. Not great either. I LOVE onions so I thought this would be wonderful. . . Bland. Not worth the amount of onions necessary.

This dish went down a treat! My only regret is not making more onions. I seasoned my lentils with garlic, ginger, a dash of jerk seasoning, black pepper and a little salt! Tastaaayy!

Absolutely delicious!!! I grounded fennel and coriander seeds along with the cumin. I added fresh garlic to the onions after I browned them and a tiny bit of ghee. Then I mixed in the beans. Even though I browned the onion slightly too long they were still tasty. My daughter and I love this dish! Thank you so much for sharing. I will make this often.

Delicious, can the spices blend together and fill the kitchen with amazing smell!

Turned out great! I used recommendation someone else mentioned about adding butter and brown sugar when cooking onions. Also, if you think you have enough onions, add more. May look like a lot, buy by the time they're caramelized there is half what you thought :) will definitely make again. I also used canned lentils because it's all i had on hand. Still delicious

Very good. It is a very easy dish that I group up on being Lebanese. We always eat it with dill pickle and raw onion.

This is the best dish. Simple and delicious. The onions are the key, cook slow and steady, I add a bit of butter and sugar to assist in the caramelization process which adds another layer of complexity. Tonight I added chickpeas and spinach and used broth instead of water to add flavor. Otherwise perfect, I serve with grilled marinated chicken.

I thought this was really good and surprisingly full of flavor. It was subtle and on the mild side in terms of punch but I really loved it. Made good leftovers too. I probably took the warning about keeping onions on low too seriously because they didn't crisp up, but the flavor was still there
