  1. Bring water and lentils to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until lentils are almost tender, about 15 minutes; add bulgur and salt. Cover saucepan and remove from heat; set aside until bulgur is tender and water is absorbed, about 20 minutes.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion and garlic until until tender and fragrant, 5 to 10 minutes. Add tomatoes and red bell pepper; cook and stir until red bell pepper is tender, 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Combine bulgur-lentil mixture and vegetable mixture in a bowl; add balsamic vinegar and 2 tablespoons olive oil and toss to coat.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can change the oils and vinegar. I've used lemon-infused olive oils and fig-infused balsamic vinegar, for example. Adding avocado is always a good choice. It really doesn't look pretty, but it tastes great!
  • If the bulgur seems dry after sitting for 20 minutes, add more water.

My favorite part is how to cook the lentils and the bulgur in ONE pot! Aside from that, it is a good template for many different combinations of vegetables and always tasty.

Thought this was pretty good. I am not a fan of legumes, but have been trying to find ways of sneaking them into my diet. The balsamic gives this a good flavor, but I think next time I would use...
