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.

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
