Poached eggs over lentils and mushrooms

This is a hearty no meat meal for two.
Serves: 2
Total time: 45 minutes

1 cup french/green lentils
1/2 pound mushrooms (crimini or shiitake) 
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
splash of red wine (optional)
4 eggs

3 tablespoons dijon mustard
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Cook 1 cup of french lentils in water for 30-45 minutes (until soft).  In the meantime chop mushrooms.  When lentils are almost done saute mushrooms in oil/butter and add splash of red wine when they are soft.  Add lentils to mushrooms with salt & pepper.  In the mean time bring a small sauce pot of water to a boil.  Crack two eggs into a small dish then swirl the water and gently drop in the pair of eggs and cook for 2.5 minutes.  Repeat for the other two eggs.  Serve eggs over lentils. Drizzle dressing on top.

    Hi Christina! I apologize writing to you in your comments section but I could not find an email address for you anywhere.

    I was wondering if you would be interested in taking part of a scene for a reality TV show.

    Our show follows the lives of the King family who own and operate their own farm (Freedom Farms) out in Butler county. The Kings are all about sustainable farming and the locavore lifestyle.

    For an episode coming up we wanted to have a blogger who was interested in this movement come out to the farm to really see where their food comes from and why this lifestyle is such a positive choice.

    Here is a link to the Kings Farm:

    and if you would like I could send you a link to our preview episode that was aired on June 14th on the GAC network.

    I would love to speak more with you on this and go into more detail but I think it would be best to do over email!

    my email address is

    Really looking forward to hearing from you!

    Thanks Christina
