Inspired by the well known sandwich of NY’s Kalustyans.


  • 1 part bulgar (soaked in double the volume of boiling water)
  • 3 parts green lentils (NOT french green lentils)
  • onions, caramelized
  • cumin
  • allspice


  • Pita bread
  • hummus
  • greek yogurt
  • cucumber slices
  • tomato slices
  • Mujadara

note: 1 cup lentils and 1/3 cup of bulgar + 2 onions yields > 5 cups of mujadara… I learned the hard way. So unless you have a family of 10 to feed, start with half a cup of lentils and 1/6th of bulgar…

I dont really have a picture of my own. Above photo is curtesy of Serious Eats. Though it tastes darn good, it’s lentil mush after all.  Also,  I don’t like iceberg lettuce, which is what Kalustyans serves with their version of the sandwich, so I used cucumbers for the extra texture. Yum yum.
