Lentils and eggs

Eastside Road, Healdsburg, February 25, 2009

DINNER AT HOME, and a delicious one at that, one we'd looked forward to since Giovanna wrote about it a couple of weeks ago: Lentils with eggs. At one point Lindsey sounded a little dubious: "I can't think what lentils and eggs have to do with one another." But as Giovanna says, where fried eggs are involved, it can't be bad.

Lindsey followed the recipe that had inspired Giovanna, cooking the lentils in chicken broth with aromatics and tomato paste topping them with the eggs fried in olive oil and a few leaves of arugula. A beautiful dish.
