Serves 4

1 cup lentils, rinsed and picked over (i like red)
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 TB Whole Foods Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 TB Whole Foods Organic Dijon Mustard
1 red bell pepper, diced
3 scallions, thinly sliced

Prep Time: 45 minutes

In medium saucepan, bring 21/4 cups of water to a boil. Add lentils, 1/4 tsp of salt, black pepper, and oregano. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until lentils are just tender, about 25 minutes. Drain any remaining liquid .

Meanwhile, in large bowl, whisk together remaining 1/2 tsp salt, lemon juice, oil, and mustard. Add drained lentils, bell pepper, scallions, and mint; toss to combine.

In a vegetable steamer, steam broccoli and carrots until broccoli is crisp-tender. Add to bowl with lentils and toss again. Serve warm, at room temperature, or chilled.
