Updated Vospov Kufteh/Ոսպով Քիւֆթէ (Red Lentil Patties) Recipe! [+Video]

Today I am sharing the recipe for one of my favourite dishes: Vospov Kufteh/Ոսպով Քիւֆթէ! It is vegan-by-default and is so flavourful, filling & easy on the eyes, too! It would be paired really well with a nice tomato/cucumber salad!

-Some dishes are served best fresh, I know. While vospov kufteh is great the day of, it only gets better the next day. So if you have an event you want to have it ready for, do it the day or night before for the best results!
-For both the red lentils and the bulgur, make sure to buy the smallest size possible!

What you need:
-2 cups red lentils
-1.5 cups fine bulgur
-1 large white onion, chopped
-1/3 cup olive oil
-1 TBSP cumin
-1 TBSP paprika
-2-3 TBSP hot pepper paste
-1 bunch spring onions (approx 2/3 cup once chopped)
-1/2 punch parsley (approx 2/3 cup once chopped)
-1 TBSP salt
-5 cups water
-1 TBSP red hot pepper (optional, garnish)

-Heat up 5 cups of water, keeping a kettle with hot water ready in case more is needed
-Add salt and stir
-Rinse the lentils very well in a strainer
-Add them to pot, bring to a boil
-Remove the foam that arises and reduce heat to medium, keeping the pot uncovered
-Cook for about 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally
-While the lentils are boiling, cook your white onion with the oil, until browned
-Once the lentils are cooked and "creamy," turn off heat and let them cool
-Rinse the bulgur, drain all excess water and let it sit to soften (if there is water leftover it will interfere when you mix it with the lentils)
-Finely chop up your spring onions and parsley, setting some aside to use for garnish
-Once lentils have cooled, add them to your greens and mix well
-Add the cumin, paprika and pepper paste, and mix in well
-Add bulgur in gradually and let the mixture sit for a bit so the bulgur softens completely
-Shape your mixture into kuftehs, burgers, or simply put it into a container
-Garnish with extra spring onion, parsley and pepper and enjoy!
