In a medium sized pot add 2 cups water and the rinsed red lentils. Stir well, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cover the pot. Boil lentils for approximately 20 minutes until they are soft.
Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the bulgur. Mix well and cover the pot for approximately 30 minutes until all of the water has been absorbed.
Meanwhile, in a medium sized pan heat the olive oil. Add the cumin, paprika, red pepper flakes and the chopped onions. Cook for approximately 5 minutes over medium heat until the onions are soft and translucent.
Stir the onion mixture, including the cooking oil, into the bulgur and lentil mixture. Add the parsley, green onions, salt and pepper and mix well. Allow to cool completely.
