Cook the rice according to the package instructions and drain. Soak and cook the lentils according to the package instructions and drain well. Wash the eggplant and cut into small pieces.

Wash, halve and core the bell pepper and cut into pieces.

Heat the oil in a large skillet and fry the eggplant over a medium heat until golden brown, turning frequently. Then add the pepper, reduce the heat, cover and cook until soft. Add 2-3 tablespoons water if necessary. Stir in the spring onions towards the end of cooking time. Finally stir in both kinds of rice and the lentils. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let cool to room temperature, then stir in the parsley and check the seasoning.

For the garlic dressing, peel and chop the garlic. Puree the olive oil with the garlic, lemon juice, water, sugar, salt and pepper using a hand blender. Spoon the rice salad into bowls and serve sprinkled with the garlic dressing.
