The Refreshing New Way to Eat Lentils
Bowls aren't complicated, yet you can make a good one great if you follow a few simple guidelines. If you're using grains, such as the puy lentils in this unexpected, gorgeous combination from Nourish Bowls, put them on the bottom. They're usually the least exciting ingredient, visually speaking (they tend to be brown), and they take up the most volume. Go by weight next; heavier pickled cucumber slices followed by grated or julienned carrot that you've dressed with grated fresh ginger and a squeeze of lemon juice. Finally, add the most delicate elements: a fried egg, a few sprigs of some sort of salad green and some chopped fresh mint.
