Ingredients For The Mujadara:

  • Brown rice 1 cup
  • Brown lentil 1 cup
  • Vegetable stock 4 1/2 cups
  • Olive oil 3 tbsp
  • Onions, sliced 2
  • Garlic, minced 1 clove
  • Ground cumin 1 tsp

For The Bowls:

  • Eggs 4

Bring the stock to a boil. Add the rice, lentil, and a big pinch of salt. Cover and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook until the rice and lentil are tender, adding more liquid a little at a time if all of it is absorbed before the rice and lentils are cooked. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large pan, add the onions and cook until deeply browned and beginning to caramelize, add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes more. When the rice and lentils are ready, remove from the heat and let sit covered for 10 minutes. Add 1/2 of the onion mixture, cumin, chopped parsley, and remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil and gently fold to incorporate. Reserve the remaining onions for serving. Heat very little oil in another pan and fry the eggs one at a time. Season the eggs with salt, pepper, and a dash of paprika. Divide the rice and lentil mixture equally between 4 bowls. Place a fried egg on each bowl. Garnish with the remaining caramelized onions, harissa sauce and toasted walnuts.
