Tagged: , , , ,

We got this recipe straight from a woman we met who is from Turkey, so you know this dish is going to be good 🙂


  • 1 large onion
  • 1-2 large tomatoes (or stewed tomatoes if you’re making this in the winter)
  • Stock (chicken or vegetable)
  • Green lentil
  • 1 bunch purslane
  • (Optional) Red pepper flake
  • (Optional) Freshly squeezed lemon juice


  1. Chop the onion and tomato and sauté together in a large pan until browned
  2. Add broth and lentils and cook to the package’s instructions
  3. Right before serving, add in the chopped purslane and simmer for 1-2 minutes
  4. Top with red pepper flakes and lemon juice and serve!
