Recipe Ingredients for Warm French Lentils (Barefoot Contessa)

6 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 leek, white and light green parts, sliced 1/4-inch thick
2 carrots, scrubbed and 1/2-inch-diced
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 cup Organics Green Lentils Dry
1 whole onion, peeled and stuck with 6 whole cloves
1 white turnip, cut in half
4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tsp kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Recipe Directions for Warm French Lentils (Barefoot Contessa)

  1. Heat the 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a medium saute pan, add the leek and carrots, and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute and set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, place the lentils, 4 cups of water, the onion with the cloves, and the turnip in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes, or until the lentils are almost tender. Remove and discard the onion and turnip and drain the lentils. Place them in a medium bowl with the leek and carrots, and add the butter.

  3. Meanwhile, whisk together the 1/4 cup of olive oil, the mustard, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Add to the lentils, stir well, and allow the lentils to cool until just warm, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve. The longer the lentils sit, the more salt and pepper you'll want to add.
