Comforting food doesn’t have to be fried, smothered in cheese or topped with whipped cream. When we think of soothing ingredients, our mind wanders to lentils. In this recipe, our Test Kitchen uses the meaty legumes as a bed for simply broiled, mild Arctic char. The entire plate is finished with a drizzle of fresh basil oil and a smattering of chopped tomatoes. It’s the type of dinner that takes the edge off.
