I have a question about the recipe "Crispy Roasted Shallot and Lentil Sheet Pan Mujadara" from Sarah Jampel. Your thoughts on using brown jasmine rice in this instead of long-grain white rice? ;o)

I always make megedarra with brown rice, though I use the stove top (for my own recipe, which is on this site, and which uses shallots as well). The issue is with the cooking time, since brown rice takes up to 50 minutes to cook, and the combined cook time here is 35 minutes. Maybe if you put in the rice first and gave it a head start (and additional boiling water), but it might require a bit of experimentation!

Thank you, Lisanne. I'll wait to make this until I can get some white rice.

I'm really curious how the shallots remain crispy after all that time in a sealed pan with quite a bit of water . . . . . ;o)

It should work great although for brown rice you may want to factor in additional cooking time and/or a bit more water.
