Truffle, Mushroom, Rice and Mountain Lentil Pilaf

By: Ramona Cuisine from
Truffle Mushroom Rice and Mountain Lentil Pilaf
Truffle Mushroom Rice and Mountain Lentil Pilaf

"Oh, lentils…. I’m such a lentil lover that I could soon start making sweets with it. It’s an idea! I probably will, lentils are lovely and so good for us so, why not? This combination of mushroom, rice, lentil, and truffle is really delicious, and this dish could be a side dish to a nice grilled meat or eaten as it is with some pickled beets or any pickles if you like pickles as much as I do. Enjoy this perfect combo of rice, mushrooms, and truffle, an excellent side or main dish, vegetarian or combined with a nice piece of meat, ideal for a nice dinner or a big party."

NotesThis recipe serves 4 as a main and 6 as a side dish. Since truffles are seasonal and not so easy to procure, this can be replaced with 1 tbsp of a good truffle paste which is available to buy in the supermarket. Truffle oil could also be used.


Cooking Time35 min


  • 150 g mountain or turtle lentils organic
  • 550 ml vegetables or chicken stock
  • 2 medium-large onions
  • 1 leek chopped
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 1/2 tsp sea salt or pink Himalayan
  • 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pinch red chilli flakes optional
  • 1 tsp sumac powder optional


  1. In a deeper pan (ideally nonstick) put olive oil and chopped onion. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the finely chopped mushrooms, the shredded leek and the diced celery stalks, salt, pepper and the turmeric powder. Add some water or stock (approx 400ml) cover and cook until the water begins to simmer.

  2. Add the washed rice and lentils, stir and cook on low heat for about 10 min from boiling point on low heat and covered. Add a drizzle of stock every now and again if your rice absorbed it all or if you'd like the rice to be juicier.

  3. Dish out your rice, sprinkle some fresh herbs along with some sumac and even some red chilli if you fancy.

  4. Serve hot or cold by itself or as a side dish to any meat.
