1 cup red lentil
2 cups of water
1/2 cup fine bulgur

Wash lentils and boil gently until all water gone, about 5 mins. Stir bulgur in thoroughly and set aside to soak and cool for 10 mins. Each recipe below uses the whole base mix, but you can halve quantities and make a batch of savoury and a batch of sweet.

Red lentil kofte
Tasty and great in school lunches, can wrap in lettuce for a different texture.

6 spring onions
3 cloves garlic
2 tsp canola oil
1/3 cup water
1.5 tsp citric acid
1 tsp salt (to taste)

Finely chop whites of spring onions and garlic, fry in oil stirring. Add water and citric acid and bring to boil. Set aside to cool. Very finely chop the green parts of the spring onions, add and stir all into the lentil bulgur base. With wet hands, roll walnut-sized balls and set out on plate to dry a little. Will keep 3-5 days in the fridge. Can wrap each in a lettuce leaf for a different texture.

Carob yum balls
Chris who answers your emails sometimes says “I really like chocolatey ones”.

4 tblspns castor (fine) sugar
4 tblspns carob powder, sieved

Mix vigorously into the lentil bulgur base. With wet hands, roll walnut-sized balls and set out on a plate to dry a little. Will keep 3-5 days in fridge and become dryer with time.
