Mujaddara from Food52

Lately, I've been cooking as much as I can on the weekend so we have food to get us through the weekdays. This week I made a recipe that I adore from the early days of Food52: Mujaddara with Spiced Yogurt, which is essentially rice and lentils with loads of caramelized onions and a yogurt sauce scented with cinnamon, cumin, coriander, and mint. For dinner I served it with lamb chops. For lunch, with smoked ham. On the side, a parsley cake (yes, parsley!) from the wonderful Roberta's Cookbook, and an apple as back-up in case the green cake was cast aside in front of classmates.
