cooking with hilary: braised leeks + moscovado lentils + pork garlic sausage

I love going over to our friends Hilary and Will's place for dinner. Hilary's a terrific cook and I always look forward to devouring what she's come up with for dinner. She makes amazing crackers and dips, braises roasts and whips up banana "ice cream" all in less than 36 square feet - that's including the appliances. No, I'm not saying her food tastes better because of her Lilliputian kitchen, but come on! It's a good lesson for me: One can make magic with just a stick, but you need a fairy godmother's touch.

When Hilary was thinking of what to make for our next evening together, she came across this post on Sprouted Kitchen. She remembered Mr. Mari's giddy love of the humble lentil and thought it would be a good recipe to try. Paired with some garlic pork sausages from Whole Foods, we had ourselves a dinner. Delish! The moscovado sweet lentils with the caramelized leeks and sausages: awesome. Everyone should be so lucky to have a food fairy godmother as a friend.
