Bulgur Pilaf (Bulgur Pilavı)




2 cups bulgur (thick grind)
1 cup green lentils
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tsp salt
6 cups of water
1 thin slice of onion

Add the lentils to the water in a pan. Boil until the lentils are soft. Bring the heat to low and add the bulgur and the salt. Stir and cook covered under low heat until all the water is absorbed. Do not stir. In a separate pan, heat the olive oil. Add the thin slice of onion to the olive oil to check when it is ready. Once the onion slice becomes dark brown, the olive oil is ready to be poured on the bulgur. Remove the onion slice and pour the olive oil on the cooked bulgur. Stir to make sure all the bulgur is covered with the olive oil. Bulgur pilaf is perfect to be eaten with vegetable dishes such as green beans.
