Lentils with Swiss Chard and Pomegranate Molasses

This hearty vegetarian dish combines quick cooking brown lentils and silky, sweet caramelized onion. The earthy, deep flavors are brightened with lemon juice and tangy-sweet pomegranate molasses, while Swiss chard lends minerally notes and cilantro brings freshness. We quick-pickle the chard stems in lemon juice and add them at the end; they offer a pleasing textural contrast to the lentils. Use rainbow chard if available—the brightly hued stems add pops of color. The lentils are especially good with seared salmon fillets, runny-yolked eggs or hunks of warm, crusty bread.

Tip

Don't bother picking off just the leaves from the bunch of cilantro. The tender parts of the stems are fine to use, too. Simply lop off the stems from the entire bunch, removing just the thicker, more fibrous sections.
