Lentil Salad:

  • 10 cups vegetable broth

  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 cups pomegranate arils
  • 1 cup toasted sliced almonds
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped green onions

Instructions

  • Pour the vegetable broth into a large stockpot. Bring to a boil. Add the dried lentils and garlic. Stir and lower the temperature to medium-low.¬†Simmer for approximately 20 minutes, until firm, but cooked through. Drain off any excess broth and pour the lentils into a large salad bowl.
  • Once the lentils are mostly cooled, add the pomegranate arils, toasted almonds, and chopped green onions.
