Baked Lentils & Rice

1 TBSP coconut oil to saute onion plus enough to coat an 8x10 casserole
1 onion - chopped
3 cups vegetable (or chicken) broth - boiling
1/2 cup brown lentils
1/3 cup brown rice
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Preheat oven to 325 and lightly oil casserole dish.

Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat and saute onion until it is translucent - about 10 minutes.

Combine rice, lentils, onion and spices in a bowl and then transfer to prepared casserole dish. Pour boiling broth over the dish and cover either with a lid or tightly with foil.

Bake 60 to 80 minutes. Check around 1 hour to see if the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is tender.
