  • Increase heat to high and stir lentils, rice, bulgur, garlic, and mint into the pot. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover partially and cook, stirring occasionally, until lentils are very soft, about 35 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute brown rice for the white rice if desired.

Since these ingredients absorb a lot of water, you may need to add more water to prevent sticking and burning.
