LENTILS AND SPINACH

2000-03-03



Lentils And Spinach image

This is my own adaptation of an Indian recipe. It doesn't look like much, but it is surprisingly yummy. Serve this for dinner over hot rice or a diced baked potato. Pair with carrots, cauliflower, or a fresh sliced tomato for a full meal.

Yield Makes 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 10

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups brown lentils
  • 2 small onions, diced (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 stalk celery, trimmed and diced (about 1 1/2 cup)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Salt
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock or canned reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cups finely shredded fresh spinach, thoroughly washed and drained

Steps:

  • Pour enough cold water over the lentils, onions, carrots, celery, and bay leaves in a 3-quart saucepan to cover by three fingers. Season with salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Adjust the heat so the water is at a gentle boil and cook until the lentils are tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain the lentils, discard the bay leaves, and transfer to a large skillet.
  • Pour in the chicken stock and olive oil and season lightly with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and cook until the liquid is reduced enough to coat the lentils, about 3 minutes. Scatter the spinach over the lentils and toss just until the spinach is wilted, about 1 minute. Taste and add salt and pepper if necessary. Serve immediately.

  • Coat a large high-sided sauté pan over medium-high heat with the olive oil. Add the lentils, garlic cloves and bay leaves with 4 cups water or just enough to cover. Bring the water to a simmer and lower the heat. Simmer the lentils, uncovered, until they are tender, 25 to 30 minutes. (If you need to add water for the lentils to finish cooking, add a little at a time —there will be more flavor in the lentils if you cook them and end up with very little liquid at the end of the process.)
  • Once the lentils are cooked but still somewhat al dente, set them aside to cool. Remove and discard the garlic cloves and the bay leaves. Season with just a touch of salt and pepper to taste. Retaste, but hold off on reseasoning until serving.
  • Add the duck fat to a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the onions, season with salt to taste and allow them to caramelize, about 5 minutes per side.
  • When you are ready to serve, add the lentils to the sautéed cipollini onions. Stir to coat the lentils with the duck fat. Taste and season with salt, if needed, and stir in the vinegar to taste. Transfer to a serving bowl.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a 6-quart pot with a tight-fitting lid over medium-high heat. Add the onion, carrot, fennel and 1/2 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened, about 6 minutes. Stir in the rosemary and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until very fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the tomatoes and their juices, broth, lentils and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and bring just to a boil. Cover the pot, reduce the heat to medium low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the lentils are just tender, about 30 minutes. There will be a good amount of broth left in the pot, which is fine. Turn off heat and stir in the kale and 3 tablespoons of the parsley until the kale is just wilted. Divide the lentil mixture among 4 large bowls and set aside while frying the eggs.
  • Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in large nonstick skillet. Crack the eggs into the skillet and sprinkle with salt and pepper; fry 2 minutes for sunny-side up, or longer if firmer yolks are desired. Top each serving of lentils with a fried egg and sprinkle with the remaining parsley.
