  • 2 tsp onion chutney (or a drizzle of lemon or vegan yogurt. All are great as garnish!)


  • Put the cumin and cayenne pepper into a large pot and toast it slowly (no oil).
  • In the meantime, dice the garlic and onion.
  • When the cumin begins to smell (after 2 or 3 minutes usually), add the olive oil, garlic and onion. Let it cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the tomato concentrate, the red lentils, rice, the vegetable broth and water.
  • When it begins to boil, add the turmeric, bay leaf and thyme. Cover and let simmer gently for 20-25 minutes. Stir every few minutes. Have a quick taste test to make sure the rice is cooked to your liking. Add the salt, remove well and turn off the heat. Add the paprika and serve.
