    This comes from one of my Food and Wine cookbooks. They say to serve this with a petite sirah. I’m posting it for ZWT3.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a medium pot, combine the lentils, onion, carrot, garlic, bay leaf, and enough water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil.
    2. 2
      Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, until the lentils are tender, about 30 minutes.
    3. 3
      Drain; discard the onion, carrot, garlic and bay leaf.
    4. 4
      In a small frying pan, toast the pecans over moderately low heat, stirring frequently, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Chop them.
    5. 5
      In a large glass or stainless steel bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons of the vinegar, ½ teaspoon of the salt and ¼ teaspoon of the pepper. Add the oil slowly, whisking.
    6. 6
      Shred half of the spinach and put in a large glass or stainless steel bowl.
    7. 7
      Add the hot lentils, half of the dressing, the remaining vinegar, salt and pepper. Toss gently until the spinach wilts.
    8. 8
      Toss the remaining spinach with the remaining dressing and put on plates. Top with the lentil mixture and toasted pecans.
    9. 9
      Using a vegetable peeler, shave the cheese over the top.
