Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Lentil Kofte
(My Whole Food Life)


2 cups red lentils
1 cup fine bulgur
1 medium to small onion, chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tablespoon hot pepper sauce
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 bunch green onion chopped
½ bunch parsley chopped
1 lemon juice
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
Cook 2 cups of red lentil in 6 cups of water until soft. Take it off the fire, add 1 cup of fine bulgur and teaspoon salt , cover the pan with a lid and let it sit until all the water absorbed and forms a soft doughy consistency. About 20-30 minutes.

Meanwhile, saute the chopped onion with olive oil. Then add tomato paste, pepper paste, cumin and paprika, mix them all and cook for just few minutes more. Take off fire.
Now add lemon juice mix well. (sometimes I use only half a lemon juice and add pomegranate juice or molasses/sauce for the other half).

Now add this mixture into lentil and bulgur mixture as well as chopped green onions and chopped parsley. Mix all well, place in a serving dish with green salad leaves. (I use romaine lettuce) and use them as a vegetable wrap to serve with lentil koftes.
