Lentils du Puy, also called French green lentils, are the type to use in this hearty side dish. They hold their shape and retain a firm yet tender texture even under the intensity of pressure cooking. We cook them in apple cider, with a fresh Granny Smith thrown in for brightness and acidity; leeks and chives balance the dish with savory onion notes. These lentils are a terrific accompaniment to grilled or roasted salmon, pork or sausages.

Tip

Don't forget to wash and dry the leeks after slicing them; their many layers trap sand and grit.

I've made many Milk Street recipes and I have to say, this is one of my favorites. It will definitely hit my 'go-to' list of recipes. Easy to make, complex in flavor and heartily satisfying! Well done, Milk Street!
