One of the great things about this recipe is that you should have all of these ingredients in your pantry already (See Grocery Bag).
- brown lentils
- one small onion
- olive oil
- long-grain white rice
- dried thyme
- chicken or vegetable broth, optional — water also works!
- cayenne pepper (optional)
- kosher salt (I like coarse)
- black pepper (I like coarse ground)
- parsley or cilantro (optional)
