Ingredients

    1 c Lentils (dry)
    1 c Cous cous (dry)
    1 c Vegetable broth
    3 T Olive oil
    1.5 c Celery, chopped

Rinse lentils and boil in 2 cups of water for 20 minutes.

In the meantime, chop celery, onion, and garlic. Heat two tablespoons olive oil in a medium saucepan. Add celery, onion, and garlic to the warm oil, add salt and pepper, and saute until soft.

Add vegetable broth to the vegetables and bring to a boil. When it reaches a boil, add dry cous cous and remove from heat. Cover for five minutes.

Drain the lentils. After five minutes, "fluff" the cous cous and add lentils. Cool slightly and toss in feta cheese, fresh herbs, lemon juice, and 1 T olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste.

  • I added kidney beans, and switched it to chicken broth because I didn't have veggie stock. I used Basil. It made more like 6 servings, hope they freeze well. - 5/28/12
