This may sound like a plain recipe, but believe me, it's wonderful! It is an easy-to-make Middle Eastern comfort food that combines lentils, rice and delicious fried onions. The yogurt really gives it a super flavor!

Boiled Mustard Potatoes

Rating: 3.5 stars 21
This is a side dish that my husband's family in the south has been eating with corned beef and cabbage for years. It's a great addition to this traditional meal. The potatoes act like a sponge, taking in the mustard flavor. YUM!

TK's Forbidden Black Rice Salad

Rating: 5 stars 4
This fresh, delicious, and healthy dish is loved by everyone at first bite. It is made with forbidden rice, which has been eaten in China for centuries. It's full of fiber, vitamins, antioxidants, and flavor. It somehow manages to give one a sense of well-being, peace, and energy at the same time. It is filling without leaving you with a feeling of being stuffed. Delicious! Serve slightly warm or at room temperature.
