Millet, Lentil, and Pomegranate Salad

Recipe Ingredients for Millet, Lentil, and Pomegranate Salad

1 cup millet
1 cup green lentils
4 pomegranates
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup parsley
4 green onions

Recipe Directions for Millet, Lentil, and Pomegranate Salad

  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, dry-roast millet until the color darkens and the millet smells like toast. Pour 2-1/2 cups salted boiling water over roasted millet and cover. Once millet and water begin to boil, reduce heat to medium low and cook for 30-40 minutes, or until water is absorbed and millet is thoroughly cooked but not falling apart. Keep covered, and cool to room temperature.

  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan over medium heat, cook lentils in 4 cups of water for 30-40 minutes over medium heat, or until lentils are thoroughly cooked. Once water starts boiling, salt to taste. As lentils cook, add more water if necessary, and drain any extra water once lentils are cooked. Cool lentils to room temperature.

  3. In a large bowl, toss millet and lentils in olive oil. Add pomegranate seeds, lemon zest and juice, parsley, and green onions. Salt and pepper to taste.
