I have gotten a few requests for my Mujaddara recipe. So this goes out to Jen, Kate, Grandma, and anyone else who is curious.
Bulgur wheat and lentils are the basis of this simple recipe. I buy mine in the bulk food section at Winco.
Caramelize these in 1 Tablespoon olive oil:
- 1 small onion
- garlic to taste ( I use 3 big cloves - but I really like garlic)
- 1 1/2 cups chicken broth (or vegetable broth if you'd rather, or water if you're out)
- 1/2 cup bulgur wheat
- 1/2 cup lentils
Bring it to a boil, then lower heat and cook for 30 minutes.
That's it! When you are done you will have a rice-like dish that can be eaten as a side, or the main course, if you like. Tastes good hot or cold. Makes an excellent substitute for rice in bento boxes.
Thanks to Sue for sharing this recipe with me!
