For those of you who don’t know, I’m middle eastern! Although I’ve been living in Canada most of my life, my family tried to keep middle eastern traditions alive through celebrating cultural holidays, listening to arabic music and of course, through arabic cooking. One of the recipes my parents always used to make was Mujadara, this meal always made me question everything. My dad is very much a meat man; if it doesn’t have meat, its not a proper meal to him, but he loved this vegan dish and would make massive portions of it. As an adult, i’ve learned to appreciate Mujadara, with its rich spices, protein packed lentils and caramelized onions, this is the perfect, easy-to-make meal that’ll fill you up and not leave you feeling guilty.
