A complete, plant-based meal or a delicious side dish to nearly any main course.
Pour the vegetable broth into a medium to large pot (with a lid) and add the dry rice.
Cover and bring to a boil. Immediately reduce heat to simmer and continue cooking for 25 minutes.
At the 25 minute mark, add the lentils, onions, lemon juice, lemon zest and garlic powder to the pot.
Replace lid on pot, bring to a boil, and reduce to a simmer again immediately.
Cook for another 15 minutes, or until the rice and lentils are fully cooked.
If something isn't completely cooked, add another 1/2 cup of stock and cook at a simmer until the liquid has cooked out.
Stir in fresh parsley if using and serve.
