Mujadarrah, a Middle Eastern dish of rice, lentils, and caramelized onions, is satisfying at any temperature. “Oh, how I love the stuff on a really crappy winter day, when the house is all steamed up from the kitchen, and I’m tired and hungry,” says Vetter. “I always eat mine hot, with harissa, and sometimes a smidge of sour cream. Talk about something being more than the sum of its parts.” scubadoo97 likes it hot, “but I’ve been known to eat it straight from the fridge.” junglekitte likes it at room temperature, on a sandwich from a deli—but finds it’s still great refrigerated and eaten cold as leftovers. “I like it either way,” says harrie. “I usually have it as a hot side or main, then have the leftovers as a cold lunch or cold side with lunch.” Enjoy!
