From the Test Kitchen

For this hearty dish, you’ll toss a trio of roasted squash, poblano, and tomatoes with black beluga lentils—cooked until deliciously tender, then lightly crisped in the pan to remove excess moisture, which helps them absorb the bright, zesty dressing that brings it all together. The velvety smooth yolk of a fried egg adds an extra layer of rich flavor, while a drizzle of Greek yogurt and a garnish of fresh mint provides a pleasantly cooling finish.

Cook the lentils
1 Cook the lentils

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the lentils and cook, uncovered, 25 to 27 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat.Drain thoroughly.

2 Prepare the ingredients & marinate the shallot

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Peel and finely chop the shallot. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, zest the lemon to get 1 teaspoon. Halve the lemon crosswise; squeeze the juice into a large bowl, straining out the seeds. To the bowl of lemon juice, add half the chopped shallot and 1 tablespoon of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Halve the tomatoes. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve the pepper lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then medium dice. Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling. Combine the halved tomatoes and diced pepper in a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat

Roast the vegetables
3 Roast the vegetables

Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the squash on the foil. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer on one side of the sheet pan. Roast 12 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. Carefully place the seasoned tomatoes and pepper on the other side of the sheet pan; arrange in an even layer. Return to the oven and roast 10 to 12 minutes, or until the vegetables are browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Meanwhile, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic and remaining chopped shallot; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Add the cooked lentils and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 6 minutes, or until the lentils are slightly crispy. Transfer to the bowl of marinated shallot; stir to combine. Rinse and wipe out the pan.
