Sophie Dahl fondly refers to this dish as Paris Mash because she used to make it in Paris while visiting an artist friend, Annie Morris. With herbs and a scattering of mâche (a sweet and tender green), the stewy lentils become a perfect combination of soup and salad. French green lentils work best here, because they hold their shape when cooked. From Food & Wine: http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/lentils-with-red-wine-and-herbs

Recipe Ingredients for Lentils with Red Wine and Herbs -D A-

1 1/2 cups French lentils (12 ounces)
1 Salt
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 small red onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup dry red wine
1 cup baby spinach (2 ounces)
1/2 cup vegetable broth
1 tablespoon creme fraiche
4 cups arugula
1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 Freshly ground pepper

Recipe Directions for Lentils with Red Wine and Herbs -D A-

  1. In a large saucepan, cover the lentils with 2 inches of water and bring to a boil. Season with salt and simmer over moderate heat until tender, 40 minutes. Drain the lentils.

  2. Heat the olive oil in a large, deep skillet. Add the red onion and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the lentils and the wine and simmer until the wine has been absorbed, about 5 minutes.
