- 3 cups low-sodium vegetable broth, divided
- 1 yellow onion, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 3/4 pound ground lamb
- 1 3/4 teaspoon dried dill, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup green lentils
- 1 cup brown rice
- 1 tablespoon tahini
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 small cucumber, peeled, seeded and sliced
- 1 plum tomato, seeded and chopped
Meanwhile, in a separate medium saucepan, bring rice and 2 cups water to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until liquid is completely absorbed and rice is just tender, about 40 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine tahini and lemon juice, then stir in cucumber and tomato. Spoon lamb and lentils over rice and top with cucumber mixture. Sprinkle with remaining dill and serve.
