Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup green lentils
  • 1 cup bulgur
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, finely diced (1 cup)
  • 1 yellow pepper, seeded and finely diced

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Directions

Place lentils and 2 cups broth in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil 5 minutes, then reduce to a simmer and cook until lentils are tender and most liquid is dissolved, about 30 minutes.

Add the onion mixture to bulgur-lentil mixture. Stir in parsley, basil, chives, lemon zest, lemon juice remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt and pepper and toss to incorporate.
