This week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe is a classic: lentils. We’ve already made lentils a couple of ways for French Fridays – served as a side dish with salmon, with tuna (or without!) and in soup form. I love lentils and each time I make them, I wonder why I don’t make them more often. I’ve got a big bag of them now and think they might be something great to cook up a big batch of on weekends and use through the week in a variety of dishes. These lentils were simmered in some chicken broth with cloves, onions, celery, carrots, a bay leaf and some garlic. Dorie offers some suggestions for serving these with a vinaigrette but I chose to dress them simply with a little lemon juice, olive oil, lemon zest and some lemon-thyme from the garden. So simple. So good. Get the recipe for Dorie Greenspan’s basic French lentils here or on page 367 of Around my French Table. French Fridays with Dorie participants do not publish the recipes on our blogs, we prefer if you purchase Around My French Table for yourselves which you can do here on Amazon or Amazon Canada.
