You Know What Are Really Tasty? Lentils

Really, they are. I think lentils make a lot of people nervous. But they can be really good.

I made these the other night and served them alongside grilled chicken. I started with organic, french green lentils (they sound snobby, don't they?). Then I kind of, sort of followed this recipe. I was out of leeks and I added some Dijon mustard and white wine. I also skipped the red wine vinegar at the end because it is too harsh for me. If you attempt this, be generous with the chicken stock so the lentils develop a tasty little sauce and don't dry out.
Good and good for you.

I love lentils. I have a great recipe for a lentil soup that is wonderful on a cool, fall night.
