6 tsp vegetable stock powder
2 cups rice

Salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil in a large pot and fry off onion. Add the tomato paste and fry for 1 minute.
Add lentils, carrots, stock powder and all of the water. bring to the boil and let simmer for 45 minutes or until the rice is cooked. Serve with crusty bread.
