Mujadara for one brings the magical combination of freshly cooked rice, lentils, caramelized onions and Middle Eastern spices to a work lunch near you. This recipe is cooked in a Corningware Meal Mug, and I list both microwave and oven (or toaser oven) cooking instructions.
½cupdupuy or green lentilssoaked overnight or for a minimum of 4 hours
½cupbasmati ricesoaked overnight
A handful of fresh corianderchopped
ut onion into half moons. Preheat a pan on low-medium heat, and add oil. Sautee onions until they begin to turn transluscent, 10 mins. Once the colour starts to change, lower heat to low and let onions continue cooking for an additional 20 mins, stirring only occassionally, until all onions have caramelized. Set aside.
When packing your lunch, arrange lentils, spices and olive oil at the bottom of your Meal Mug. Top with rice. Keep onions and coriander separate.
For microwave preparation: When ready to cook your lunch, add water. Microwave on high heat, uncovered, for 10 minutes, until holes of steam have been created in the rice. Cover with lid and microwave for an additional 5 minutes. Fluff with fork and let rest with the lid on for an additional five minutes.
For oven or toaster oven preparation: When ready to cook your lunch, boil water. Add boiling water to Meal Mug, and cook, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes, until water has evaporated and rice is cooked. Fluff with fork and let rest with a lid on for an additional five minutes.
Top with caramelized onions and coriander, and serve immediately.
