Lentils and peas

Mujaddarah (Middle Eastern Bulgur and Lentil Pilaf)

This traditional Middle Eastern dish is sometimes made with rice, and sometimes with cracked wheat. The grain is combined with lentils and lots of onions browned by olive oil. Even in its basic form, it’s delicious. Since we save some time by cooking (rather than soaking) the bulgur, I like to dress up this classic with the nontraditional but tasty additions of scallions and raisins.  more→
