Bulgur the Syrian way

A wonderful side dish or main course according to the recipe of my friend from Syria

Preparation steps

  • Cook the lentils in salted water (as an alternative, you can also use boiled lentils from a can).
  • Fry the bulgur in a little oil for 3-4 minutes. Add water as needed and a soup cube and cook the bulgur (the way you cook rice).
  • Add lentils, olive oil and spices to taste to the cooked bulgur and mix everything well.
  • Cut the onion into thin strips and fry in oil. Add a lot of pepper to the onion. Add fried onions to the top of the bulgur.


This stew is extremely healthy and nutritious. It goes well with a seasonal salad with the addition of parsley and feta cheese, but also with stewed beef.
