Mujadara Baked Rice and Lentils is straight up comfort food.
In a skillet heat oil to medium high and then turn it down to medium and saute the onion until it is translucent - about 10 minutes.
Heat 3 cups of vegetable broth to a boil.
Meanwhile, to a casserole add rice, lentils, all the spices and sauted onion.
Cover with a fitted lid or cover tightly with foil. Leaving enough foil to go over the edges, liberally.
Bake at 325 degrees for 60 minutes.
Check and see if the liquid has absorbed and the rice is tender. If not add another 10 minutes.
Please follow any of the directions defined in my article How to Prepare Food for the Freezerr.
TO PREPARE AFTER FREEZING:
If you have frozen leftover mujadara in smaller rigid containers then take out the containers and put in the fridge the day before serving. Heat in a microwave on high, stirring about every 2 minutes until heated through.
