|Yield||2 cups dressing|
This little number is inspired by chicken-liver terrine, a French brasserie and Jewish delicatessen classic. Replicating the same technique and flavor notes from a passed-down recipe, I swap out the livers for legumes. I won’t say you can trick your chicken liver-loving pals, but you will astonish them.
|1||cup dried brown or green lentils|
|2||garlic cloves, peeled and left whole|
|½ to ¾||tsp. salt, plus more to taste|

|¼||cup bourbon or cognac (booze-free option: apple cider)|
