Vegan kosherie with a kick for a hearty meal on Meatless Monday

Kosherie is a Middle Eastern dish comprising lentils, pasta, rice and a spicy, tomato-based sauce, topped with fried onions. This version (recipe adapted from Moosewood New Classics) features fried shallots instead, just to switch things up.

Although this dish requires a four-burner stove with a lot of things happening at once, it's not too difficult to juggle all the tasks.
