Rice and Lentils, right and wrong

So, on account of not having that much time or energy to put into food, I have been doing rice and lentils a lot recently. Good protein and it can taste pretty good.

So, first, the wrong way to make your rice and lentils.

I through everything into a pot (rice, lentils, sausage, chicken bouillon, and spices) and cooked it.

Unfortunately, rice take a lot longer time to cook than lentils do. So it kinda turned into glue. Nutritious and tasty glue, but not very nice texture.

The right way.

Ingredients

Rice
Lentils
Pepperoni (y’all win, I will call it pepperoni when speaking English).
Onion
Spices
Chicken stock

I made the rice with half water, half stock, to make it flavorful.

Then, I cooked my lentils in chicken stock with all my spices and some pepperoni and the onion (quartered).

Serve with some olive oil and pepperoncini.
