Simple Braised French Lentils

(from Feasting At Home by Sylvia Fontaine) After taking a virtual cheese class from Paris a few weeks ago, I was reminded of how much I miss some of my favourite French dishes.

Making it feels a bit like a magic trick since you put a pan of liquid batter into the oven and in no time it blooms up into a crispy, golden puffball (kids will happily sit in front of the oven glass and watch its progress with awe).

Dutch baby is also like a distant but beloved cousin of the cheddar soufflé in my first book. It’s easier and faster than soufflé, though, and while it’s not as luxurious, it’s still incredibly tasty and satisfying. And since it always looks like a salad bowl to me, I add greens and make it true!
