I prefer to have this pilaf instead of rice. It is more nutritious and delicious for me.
It is good to go with yogurt and green onion or any kind of salad.
- 1 cup of green lentils, washed
- 1 cup of bulgur( dried, medium crushed wheat)
- 2 cups of boiling water
- 1 medium size of onion
- 1/2 cup of olive oil
- 1 tbs of red pepper paste
Thinly slice the onion. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat and add the onion. Saute the onion until it is golden brown. Add this saute to the pilaf and stir gentle. Take the pan to a cool place and cover it with paper towel, put the lid on and let sit 15 minutes. This way, paper towel absorbs all of the remaining water.
