Eating for Two: Brown Rice with Lentils and Apricots Recipe

Serves: 4 Save

Ingredients (11)

  • 1/2 cup lentils, washed and picked over; plain old lentils are good here (as opposed to beluga or Puy)
  • 1 cup any brown rice, rinsed
  • About 3 1/4 cups beef, chicken, or vegetable stock or water, plus more as needed (I use water)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • About 1 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons butter or extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup diced dried apricots or other dried fruit (raisins are fine)
  • Minced fresh parsley leaves for garnish
