My favorite way to cook delicate French lentils du Puy is with caramelized onions and toasted pistachios on a bed of sautéed kale. The sweetness of the onions and salty richness of the nuts combines beautifully with the tinny lentils. On top of garlicky sautéed kale, it becomes a filling and simple meal that is loaded with good-for-you things like fiber, iron, and protein.
*If you happen to have an extra large bunch of kale and are having difficulty moving it around the skillet, cover the kale for a minute or so with a lid. It will quickly shrink under cover.
