Healthy Red Lentil Kofta Vegan Vegetarian Recipe

Red lentil kofta is a dish that originated from Turkey. It is similar to the Middle East’s dish falafel, except that the main ingredients are red lentils instead of chickpeas. It is a simple combination of red lentils, bulgur, and seasonings. It can be served as an appetizer with mayonnaise as a dip.

• 1 large onion (chopped)
• 1 cup Italian parsley (chopped)

• Salt to taste
• Crushed red pepper (optional)
• 3 cups water
• vegetable oil to fry onions


Prepare a large pot over medium-high heat.
Pour water.
Add red lentil and stir.
Cover the pot and reduce heat.
Let it cook for 25-35 minutes or until the lentils are soft.
Add the bulgur and mix.
Cover the pot and let it cook for 10 minutes or until the bulgur absorbs the water.

Knead the mixture to make sure everything is mixed well.
