Foraging with Alexis Nikole Nelson.
This hearty dish is a spin on mujaddara, a Levantine classic that typically pairs fried onions and lentils with rice. Instead of rice, we've used coarse bulgur, or cracked parcooked wheat, which lends a nutty flavor and texture. The onions are fried in olive oil until deeply caramelized—almost burnt, really—to coax out a savory bittersweet flavor. Served hot, warm or at room temperature, with a dollop of plain yogurt, this is a delicious accompaniment to grilled or roasted meats, but it’s also hearty enough to be the center of a vegetarian meal.
