The recipe for lentils is the best thing we’ve ever eaten. Make this dish with lentils folded into yogurt, spinach and basil and you will be surprised by the flavor. This is a wonderful dip or sandwich spread. Enjoy!
Make this with a light touch so you can taste the different ingredients involved. And serve it in smaller portions than you might imagine — let people come back for seconds. It is a nod to pesto and a salute to yogurt.
You can buy baby spinach year-round. But if it is spring, buy true baby spinach, the smaller leaves of the early variety; they will have a subtler taste and texture. Wash and dry either type well; the leaves will not chop or tear cleanly if still damp.
