- Prep: 20 mins
- Cook: 45 mins
1Rinse lentils and rice in cold water.
2Place lentils and rice in a stock pot with 2 cups of the vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and place the lid on the pot.
3In a skillet, heat extra virgin olive oil and saute onion, celery, carrots and garlic. Add in the cumin, turmeric, white pepper and salt. (Heating the spices draws out more of the flavor!)
4Add the vegetables and spices to the pot of lentils.
5Once vegetable stock has been reduced down, add remaining 6 cups and continue to simmer for 35-40 minutes, or until lentils are tender.
6Squeeze in fresh lemon juice.
7Taste and season if needed.
