  1. Soak all the pulses in plenty of cold water overnight. Once soaked, rinse well & pick out any bad bots or grit etc.
  2. Put lentils and beans (except fava beans) in a pressure cooker. Cover with water - at least 6 cups, and cook on a medium-high heat for 5 minutes, then reduce the heat to medium & cook for 30 minutes.
  3. In a separate pressure cooker or pan with tight fitting lid, cook the fava beans using the same method. Once cooked, drain well & set aside.
  4. In a large stockpot, heat oil, add onions and stir-fry until browned. Add the pulses, rice & bulgur to the stockpot. Season to taste & cook over low heat, stirring occasionally for 30 minutes or until rice is tender - you may need to add a little more water at this stage.
  5. Finally, add the lemon juice & cook over a low heat for 3 more minutes.
