This packaged Rice & Lentil Pilaf of Ziyad brand is a great instant side dish! The Middle Eastern name for this rice and lentil dish is Mujadara. This yummy pilaf consists of cooked rice, lentils, onions flavored with oil and spices. Mediterranean mujadara tastes so unique, rich and complete – it can be a stand alone vegetarian main dish or a side dish served alongside chicken, meat or fish.
Ziyad Mujadara Rice And Lentil Pilaf is microwaveable and is ready in 2 minutes! Inside the package there is a plastic bag with pre-cooked Mujadara, and all you need to do is cut of the top of that plastic bag and microwave on High for 2 minutes. After that, put this tasty rice and lentil pilaf on a plate and enjoy this tasty dish!
