Bulgur & lentil pilaf

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Lentils
4 cups Vegetable broth or water
1 \N Bay leaf
3 tablespoons Margarine
1 large Onion, chopped
\N \N Salt & pepper
1 cup Coarsely ground bulgur

Rinse the lentils & put in a pot with enough broth to cover. Add bay leaf, bring to a boil & keep covered. Turn off heat & let stand for 30 minutes.

While the lentils are soaking, melt margarine in a heavy pot. Add chopped onion, salt & pepper. Saute till onions are tender & transparent.

When onions are ready, keep heat at medium, stir in bulgur & continue stirring till all the margarine is absorbed. Lower heat to a simmer & add the rest of the broth & lentils in their broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat again, cover tightly & simmer till all the liquid has been absorbed. Add more liquid till the bulgur & lentils are cooked.

Remove bay leaf & serve with a vegetable stew.
