“My idea of comfort food. I eat these all the time, either as a side dish for fish or (my favorite way) with a poached egg on top.”

Directions

  1. Rinse lentils and then par-boil them with water to cover and a good sprinklng of salt (simmer hard about 25 minutes). Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, in a braising pan, saute vegetables and garlic in the olive oil (cooking bacon first if using it) for 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in dried herbs and spices and 1 cup of stock. Bring to a simmer.
  4. Add the lentils to the vegetables and stock, and simmer, stirring occasionally until the lentils are cooked, (10-20 minutes more) adding more stock as needed.
  5. Check seasoning, adding salt and pepper, to taste. Garnish with fresh squeezed lemon juice and parsley (I chose these because I serve the lentils with fish most often).
