Here is another low budget and EASY meal for two with leftovers :-D

lentils and Rice

- 1/2 cup of brown lentils
- 1 cup of uncooked rice of your choice
- 1/2 a medium onion or 1 small onion
- seasonings of your choice
- 3 cups of water


1. Put water in a pot
2. add a pinch of salt
3. Once water starts boiling, add lentils
4. Cook until lentils are soft
5. Flavor lentils and water ( I use curry powder, salt, and pepper)
5. Remove lentils from water
6. Save water for use in a few minutes
7. Put lentils in a pot (or same pot if you like)
8. Add Rice
9. Fill pot with lentil water until liquid is just above rice
10. Cook until water evaporates
11. Once food is done get a frying pan
12. Put a little vegetable oil
13. saute onions in the oil until turn golden brown
14. Put rice and lentils in a nice dish
15. Top dish with the onions, or serve on the side

Total cost is roughly around $3.00

The rice and lentils can be eaten by itself or with plain yogurt.
