Braised Lentils on Toast

Produce is so abundant at this time of year that I’m not usually thinking about recipes like this one: pantry meals that make something out of nothing, so to speak. But that’s exactly what I was thinking about when I got back from Prague in late August, greeted by a fridge that was empty except for a couple carrots and a heart of celery. I was tempted to get takeout, but then I remembered reading Nicholas Day’s ode to Judy Rogers braised lentils, and I thought about how comforting such a meal sounded after a long day of travel.
Fortunately, I’ve almost always got some onions in my kitchen, lentils in my pantry, and bread in my freezer. I decided to give the recipe, which I’ve had bookmarked for ages, a try, and was very happy to serve it over some toast. I’m pretty sure that braised lentils on toast will be keeping me company all through the winter, and whenever I’m short on groceries and in need of something tasty, nourishing, and incredibly easy to make.

I followed Nick’s version of the recipe pretty closely, making a few tweaks: I reduced the oil significantly, and I can’t imagine the lentils suffered too much for it, because they were still stewed and fragrant and flavorful. I used water instead of chicken stock (both are offered as options), and again, I was really happy with the results; I may try the recipe with vegetable stock at some point, but it’s not necessary for good flavor.

The first time I tried the lentils, I served them plain, over toast, with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar for tart sweetness. The next few times (yep, I’ve already made the recipe a couple times since late August!), I added chopped arugula for a peppery bite, and sometimes I’ve added chopped tomato, too. The recipe is a handy vehicle for using up tomato ends, if you’re used to slicing them for sandwiches or the like.

It’s all good, but if you have nothing else but carrots, onion, and celery at home, there’s no need to embellish the recipe. For all of its simplicity, it holds its own beautifully?a perfect alternative when you’re tired of French lentil soup (though I’m almost never tired of French lentil soup).
Here it is.
