Stress-free lentil-corn pilaf ready in just 30 minutes – perfect for a side dish.

Ingredients

2
cups water
1
cup dried lentils (8 oz), sorted, rinsed
1/2
cup chopped red bell pepper
1
cup frozen (thawed) or canned (drained) whole kernel corn
2
tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon chili powder

Directions

  • 1 In 2-quart saucepan, heat water to boiling. Stir in lentils and bell pepper. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until lentils are tender. Drain if necessary.
  • 2 Stir in remaining ingredients. Cook over low heat 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until corn is tender and hot.
Tips  

For more south-of-the-border spice, chop a jalapeño chile and add with the red bell pepper.

This fiber-rich pilaf makes a terrific accompaniment to grilled pork chops or baked chicken.
