Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup green lentils
  • 1 cup bulgur
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves

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.
