Bulgur With Broccolini, Lentils And Feta

Total Time: 25 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

1 cup bulgur
2 cups water
4 Tbsp lemon juice
4 oz feta cheese
8 Tbsp chopped fresh dill
4-5 cups broccolini, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 Tbsp olive oil
3 cups cooked lentils (canned, drained, or precooked)

Boil water and add bulgur, simmering for 15 minutes or until water is absorbed.

Remove from heat and add lentils, dill, lemon juice and feta. Mix well.

In a pan, heat oil and add garlic. Saute until tender, then add broccolini and saute until tender. Serve over bulgur.

Tips and Tricks
Broccolini is a small green veggie that is a cross between regular broccoli and Chinese broccoli. I was unable to find it at my local grocery store, so I just used regular, finely chopped broccoli. Dried lentils are usually cheaper than canned, but will need to be precooked according to package directions.
Make It Healthier
Reduce oil.
How Kids Can Help
Measure ingredients, use food chopper to chop broccolini.
