Gremolata is the Secret to the Tastiest Simple Lentil Soup

Even the most boring lentil soup is satisfying fare, but who says it has to be boring? The secret to this version? Gremolata, the Italian condiment of chopped fresh parsley, lemon zest, and garlic typically served with osso bucco. In this case, I use it to develop two distinct levels of flavor, once while sautéing my aromatics, and again by stirring it in at the very end. More

Roasted Tomatoes and Lentils With Dukka-Crumbed Eggs From 'A Change of Appetite'

I finish the eggs under the broiler so they set quickly, crisping up the kale in the process. More

The Food Lab: Easy Red Lentil Soup With Curry Yogurt

Even though my wife is a firecracker in many respects, when it comes to lentil soup, she likes to keep it vanilla. This time, I'm finally doing it right.
