Brown Basmati Rice With Lentils and chicken wings


1 large onion, chopped

2 cups brown basmati rice (or any other whole grain rice)

1 cup green lentils (preferably sprouted. If you didn’t have the time to sprout them ahead of time, soak them for two hours in cold water)

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp ground coriander

sea salt black pepper (to taste)

3 tbsp olive oil

appx. 1 kg chicken wings

1 tspn soya sauce (or more if needed)


Sauté the onion on a medium heat until it becomes translucent. Add the rice, lentils and spices and mix. Add 5 1/2 cups of filtered water. Bring to boil, lower to minimum heat and cover. Let cook  for about 40 minutes until the rice is ready. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (appx. 180 Celsius), transfer everything into a deep baking dish, put the wings on top and spread soya sauce on the wings. Cover and bake for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes uncover and bake for another 15-20 minutes until wings brown a little.
