Vegetable and Lentil Pilaf (vegan)

Recipe Description:

Pilaf is a dish so ancient, its origins probably predate the beginning of recorded history. Wherever it was first made, what we do know is that for many people across Asia all the way to the Mediterranean sea, there is no cooking technique more deeply rooted than the simmering of rice in a flavourful broth, timed perfectly so that each grain is fluffy and separate, with its own distinct bite. Our pilaf is a showcase of hearty ingredients that are popular across the Middle East and the Levant, but especially celebrates the lip-smacking tartness of fruity pomegranate seeds, tangy sumac and refreshing mint yoghurt.
