This was really lovely! I used brown rice (the only white I had on hand was arborio and that wouldn't do) and since I made this change I cooked it in the pot with the lentils at the same time. Both were perfectly done at the same time. I added about half a veggie boullion cube to the cooking water, as mentioned in some reviews. I didn't realize I was low on dried lentils, so I used only 2/3 cup of lentils and 1 + 1/3 cup of rice, to make up the difference. I agree with other reviews that the onions are the best part, so using more couldn't hurt. ;) I grew up with lots of traditional Ukrainian food and anyone from similar backgrounds knows the unstoppable flavour team of fried onion + sour cream, but I also found this delicious without any yogurt/sour cream. Leftovers were very versatile and I will definitely make this from now on! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!
