2 medium tomatoes

Salt and pepper to taste

In a skillet over medium heat, cook onion, celery and carrots in oil until onions are soft and fragrant, about 5-7 minutes. Stir regularly to avoid burning. Add garlic and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.

Add lentils, rice and stock and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to simmer for about 20-30 minutes until the rice and lentils are cooked.

Stir the tomatoes in at the end to heat through. Season with salt and pepper

Serve with fresh chopped parsley.
