Mujaderra (sometimes spelled Mujadara) is a lentil and rice dish that Middle-Easterners have enjoyed for centuries. Some believe that mujaderra was the “red stew” that tempted Esau to sell his birthright in exchange for a helping (Genesis 25:30). Today you will find this dish in restaurants from Egypt to Israel. During the fall, mujaderra tastes delicious when stuffed into winter squash. Our friends at My Jewish Learning show us how. Enjoy!
