  1. Place the olive oil into the bottom of the crock pot.

  2. Turn the pot onto the highest setting and add the onions.

  3. Allow the onions warm in the oil for 10-15 minutes.

  4. Add the remaining ingredients, including the water.

  5. If cooking the dish all day, reduce heat to low, otherwise leave on high setting.

  6. Cover.

  7. Stir the dish while in the crock- If it is dry, add a little water- If it's soup-like, remove lid for a little while, or turn heat to high setting.

  8. It's tasty as a main meal or as a pilaf to accompany other meals- Cook for 8 hours on low or 4-5 on high.

  9. NOTE: Start with 5 cups water or broth- That way it won't be"mushy" if you make this recipe while you're out for the entire day- You can always add more water or broth, but it's hard to"un-mush" lentils& rice!

  10. Note for Vegetarian do NOT use chicken broth.
