the well-composed plate
The lentils don't look impressive, I realize, but they are rather outstanding. The recipe is from the More with Less Cookbook. Very simple ingredients. Lentils, honey, onion, bacon, a simple sauce. You let them simmer a while. Then you let them bake a while till the savory smell permeates the house. This is comfort food, friends.
Then you have your obligatory greens...and your equally obligatory French baguette spread with soft butter.
I think I agree. It was a well-composed plate.
