I adapted this recipe that was originally published in Gourmet and had for lunch today. Fantastic! Don't skip the lemon juice or cilantro. They make the recipe.
Makes 6 first-course servings.
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
7 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 large carrot, sliced thinly
1 medium onion, choped
1/2 tsp. ground allspice
1 15 oz. can lentils
3.5 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 cup water
3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
Puree cilantro with 6 tbsp. oil and 1/4 tsp. sale in a blender until smooth. Set aside.
Cook onion and carrot in remaining tbsp oil in a heavy saucepan over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Add allspice and remaining 3/4 tsp. salt and cook, stirring frequently, 1 minute. Add lentils, broth, and water and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer, covered, until carrot is soft, about 15 minutes. Add lemon juice and pepper to taste. Stir in cilantro puree.
