I made this recipe up today because Tengelmann (a German grocery store) wanted an arm and leg and my first born child for a half pound of stew meat, and I just wasn’t gonna do it! I was planning on making Ghormeh Sabzi (a persian green stew), but I bought some minced meat instead so persian meatballs it is!
Mujaddara sounds scary and unfamiliar, but all it has is oil, onion, lentils, rice, and seasoning. THAT’S IT. It is so simple and is the perfect side dish to any Middle Eastern meal. I also really love adding spinach to the dish to round it out. All it needs then is some knarly grilled meat or a nice persian lamb stew!
