DIRECTIONS

  • In a 3 quart saucepan over medium heat, melt the margarine. Stir in the onions and cook, stirring frequently, for 2 to 3 minutes - until tender.
  • Stir in the water, juice, lentils and bay leaf. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer to 30 to 45 minutes, or until the lentils are soft but not mushy.
  • While the lentils are cooking pour the boiling water over the bulgur and allow to sit for 30 minutes. Drain well.
  • Remove the lentil pan from the heat and discard the bay leaf. Stir in the bulgur, tomato, basil and Parmesan (if desired). Mix thoroughly and serve.
