I've never had Mujadarrah before, and this dish was really good! The suggestions from reviewers were helpful, especially those for whom this was an ethnic dish. I did arrive at the finished product in a slightly different manner. I sauteed about two large onions for 15 minutes, adding cinammon (brings flavor to another level!) and cumin to the onions. Separately microwaved long-grain rice according to pkg directions, adding two chicken bouillon cubes to the water. Had to use up some TJoes prepared lentils (very good btw), so heated and added those to 1/2 the onions (saving 1/2 for topping), rice, salt and pepper. Also added some sodium-free chicken broth, as needed, to keep it moist while just to heat up. Served topped with the sauteed onions, and ff Greek yogurt (a must!) and some kalamita olives on the side. A great Lenten meal! Thanks for the great recipe, Melissa...it's a keeper!
