Are you familiar with mujadarra? It’s a beautiful dish layered with lentils and rice at the bottom, followed by caramelized onions (the more, the better), and hopefully a couple of creamy or spicy sauces on the side.
Mujadarra is served across the Middle East in various forms and goes by differing names, depending on where you are. It’s one of my favorite items to order at Middle Eastern restaurants, and this recipe tastes just like it.
If you’re not sold yet on mujadarra yet, let me tell you that it’s a seriously inexpensive vegetarian meal that would make a statement at your next get-together.
