"This is typical of lenten dishes from Lebanon. Rich in fiber and nutrients, it makes for a wonderful one dish meal or a substantial side dish. The original comes from a 1997 issue of Eating Well magazine but has been modified to suit my tastes. If you replace the chicken broth with vegetable broth, this is a vegan dish as well."

"This was really delicious! So healthy, so easy, sooooo good!!! Thank you so much for posting this delicious recipe. We were a little worried because it sounded so plain, but the flavors were absolutely divine! :)"
"A simple, savory dinner, with elements that really harmonize. I've made it a few times and I'm still pleasantly surprised by the first bite!"
"This recipe had a surprisingly lovely taste! The spices blend well together. The first time I made it, my mother-in-law was over for lunch when we had guests, and she liked it so much that she requested it again a while later that I make it at her place! She's not so used to new recipes, so that said alot! I didn't have bulgur, so I used the mill attachment on my blender to coarsely grind barley. And I didn't have allspice, but I made my blend from the recipe in my standard cookbook. Nice dish! Thanks for posting it. A tasty and healthy way to serve squash and get some whole grains at the same time. =) P.S. I served it with homemade tahini and raw veggies to balance out the meal."
"I didn't care for this much. I ended up adding Feta Cheese to it to give it a bit more flavor, but it was still "Eh". Very Healthy though, can't win them all."
"Fabulous. I made the recipe exactly as written, and intend to make it that way again. The flavors of the bulgur and lentils together were really wonderful -- this was a complete hit with me. Thanks for posting it!"
"Loved it! Easy and healthy. By accident I added the bulgur at the same time as the lentils, but it turned out fine. Maybe next time I would brown the onions before cooking them with the lentils and bulgur. Also doubled the amount of veggies."
"Great dish, thanks very much! Extremely tasty, earthy but in a really great way! Meaty too, kind of like a hash, or a hoppin' john, but uniquely good! I used half brown and half red lentils because that was what I had. NO other changes and do serve with extra lemon. It burned a little, you may want to watch it toward the end, but I scraped the browned parts from the pan and they were great too! Yum, an awesome recipe and would most definitely recommend and make again! BF really enjoyed it. Mrs B, you'll want to try this too! Thanks so much Toni:D"
"This is lovely! I made it as a main meal, and instead of using allspice I used baharat spice blend, and I also added a whole lot of baby spinach leaves at the end for extra green."
"excellent for a main course!..very tasty(I like spicy so I added some jalapeno..also very satisfying"
