Easy, hearty and nutritious! I used dried parsley and green bell pepper. Next time I may just reduce the amount of pepper a bit. This is PERFECT for those runny noses on winter nights. Thanks Veronica!

A filling and simple meal when you are too tired to do much more. My lentils were like porridge and the bulgar, peppers and onions added some needed tooth feel. I added some garlic powder and a squeeze of lemon to bring the flavor up since it was a touch too bland for my tastes.
