Lentil Soup

1 1/2 cups brown or green lentils
2 1/2 cups water (for boiling)
4 cups meat stock 1/2 eriste (homemade pasta)
2 tbsps clarified butter
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp plain flour
1 tsp mint Salt to taste
Serves 4

Wash the lentils and put on to heat in a saucepan with the water. When it comes to a boil turn down the heat and simmer for 40 minutes. Strain the water.

Place the hot meat stock and lentils in a casserole dish. When it boils add the pasta. Melt the butter in a small frying pan and brown the onions. Add the mint, salt to taste and cover. Simmer on a very low heat for approximately one hour, until thickened. Serve in the casserole dish.

Bulgur Wheat w/Onions and Meat

When we prepare this recipe we need to fry three or four green peppers along with the onions. After the bulgur has been fried we also add tomato puree or fresh tomatoes.

2 tbsps clarified butter
1 onion, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups bulgur wheat
1 1/2 cups lamp kavurma
4 cups hot meat stock
Serves 4

Fry the onion in the clarified butter. Add the bulgur and continue to fry. Add the kavurma and meat stock and cover. When it begins to boil, lower the heat. Cook for 20-25 minutes, until the bulgur becomes soft. Pour in a dish and serve.
