Lentil Pilaf with Bulgur

This recipe is from one of my practice's office managers. She is an amazing cook, brings in home-cooked food for us all the time, and when she brought this in, it was so amazing I *had* to have the recipe. And finally I got around to making it.

Put lentils in pot, cover with water, and boil. Then add bulgur and a cup of water, and simmer until water evaporates. Meanwhile, saute some chopped onion in olive oil. Then mix it all together.

With a salad and some sweet potato soup from Trader Joe's, this was a filling dinner.

Is it equal amounts bulgur and lentils?

By the way--how exciting that you are a cardiologist *and* vegan. Bravo! Bravo!

With all your running, I was wondering if you would be interested in being part of a testgroup to try 4 new PROBAR flavors. That means free vegan energy bars for you! E-mail me at probarfeedback [at] Gmail [dot] com. Thanks and good luck with your LA Marathon training!

Dear Dr. Shenkman,

My name is Isabelle and I'm a member of the WEGO Health Community [http://www.wegohealth.com]. I’ve been spending some time on your site and because of your involvement in the vegetarian and vegan communities, I wanted to get in touch with you to let you know a little bit about what we're doing here at WEGO Health. We are a new health website with a growing nutrition community. Our mission is articulated nicely here [http://www.wegohealth.com/our-mission.html].

I really think our members would enjoy your site and I’m wondering if you would be interested in introducing yourself and your blog via our message boards? Our community has a great deal of interest in vegetarian and vegan diets and I think they would love to hear your thoughts and learn about your experiences. Many members of our community have already shared their questions and experiences with the various forms of vegetarianism on this thread [http://forums.wegohealth.com/forums/viewthread/129/].

While our editorial team is currently working to pull together some vegan-specific resources, I was hoping you could provide some feedback on the vegetarian resources we currently have. These pages are largely geared towards those who are considering making the transition from an omnivore to vegetarian diet and we’d greatly appreciate your thoughts on how helpful these resources would be for beginners:
