Ingredients: 1 cup green lentils
1 onion, sliced
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup bulgur wheat
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp ground cumin
In a pot, add 1 cup of green lentils and 4 cups of water. Bring to a boil for 12-18 minutes. The lentils should be tender once ready.
Drain the lentils and reserve about ½ cup of the water.
In a pan over medium heat, add 2 tbsp olive oil and 1 sliced onion. Cook until the onions are caramelized and starting to crisp around the edges.
Then, add the reserved lentil water to the pan and simmer for 5-7 minutes. Once ready, add the onions to the pot of lentils.
In the same pot, add 1 cup of bulgur wheat. Season with salt, pepper, allspice, nutmeg, and cumin. Stir and submerge with water.
Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until all of the water is absorbed.
Serve and enjoy.
