French lentils keep their shape, and retain their bite, better than ordinary lentils. They’re so satisfying in this simple one-pan side dish.

Ingredients

olive oil

1 tsp, extra virgin

pancetta

2 oz, diced

uncooked onion(s)

1 small, minced

minced garlic

1 tsp

dry lentils

1 cup(s), French green variety, rinsed and drained

canned chicken broth

2 cup(s)

canned diced tomatoes

14 oz

rosemary

1 tsp, fresh, minced

kosher salt

1 tsp, or to taste

black pepper

tsp, or to taste

Dijon Mustard

1 tsp

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a medium-size nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Add pancetta; cook, stirring frequently, until crisp, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove pancetta to a paper towel-lined plate with a slotted spoon; set aside.
  2. Add onion; cook, stirring until softened, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add garlic; sauté for 1 minute.
  3. Add lentils, broth, tomatoes and rosemary; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low; simmer, covered, until lentils are tender, about 30 minutes. Stir in salt, pepper and mustard; sprinkle with pancetta. Yields about 1/2 cup per serving.
