    Classic recipe


    Deeply satisfying and redolent of caramelized onions and aromatic spices, mujadara is considered a staple throughout the Middle East. Consisting of steamed Basmati Rice and Green Lentils cooked pilaf-style with golden-brown fried onions, mujadara is a pleasantly spicy-yet-sweet dish.
