Wine pairing for the recipe:Semolina, lentils, eggplant, pesto, arugula and soft boiled egg

Eggs are not very easy to match, their texture in the mouth, the peculiarity of their taste, does not make things any easier.

In this recipe, the flavors are subtle and sweet for the lentils and semolina, the eggplant here with its slightly peppery note, the bitterness of arugula and the acidity of lemon.

Red wine: A Madiran or Minervois.

These are wines from the southwest. Wines that have body, without too much and taste. Those that were sometimes called "petit vin de pays" have changed a lot. French wines have really made progress and we are enjoying it! More and more, I taste and appreciate the wines of the southwest. Today, I am not offering you a particular House or Chateau ... Take your pick from your wine merchant.

Cheers, in moderation and bon appétit!

Two-tone quinoa with 6 green vegetables, mustard-chervil vinaigrette and soft-boiled eggs


In the latest magazine ‘Saveurs’ (June 2014), everything I wanted before going to the market this Sunday.

I followed the recipe with two exceptions, added a little bean, and finished the dressing with yogurt to make it a little fresher.

Too good, ideal with this summer but rainy weather.


  • 150 G RED QUINOA
  • 100 G FLAT BEANS
  • 4 EGGS + 1 YELLOW


Rinse the quinoa duo well under cold water in a fine colander.

Put the quinoa in a saucepan with 2x its volume in cold water. Season with salt and bring to a boil. After boiling, continue cooking for 7-8 minutes over medium heat.

Turn off the heat and let the quinoa swell for 15 minutes.

After this time, drain the quinoa and transfer it to a large dish.

Cook the green beans and flat beans for 10 minutes in boiling salted water. Do the same with the peas and snow peas, for 4 to 5 minutes, and to finish with the beans for 1 minute 30.

Each time, drain the vegetables well and let them cool in ice water. Remove the skin surrounding the beans.

Cut the different beans into pieces.

Peel the cucumbers, cut them in four lengthwise and remove as many seeds as possible.

Cut the cucumbers into brunoise.

Toss all the vegetables with the quinoa and olive oil. Reserve in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

Place mustard, egg yolk, vinegar and garlic in a high bowl. Salt and pepper. Mix everything together with a spoon.

Now add the sunflower oil and mix everything with a hand blender.

Then add the yogurt, mix with a spoon. Also reserve for at least 2 hours in the fridge.

Cook the 4 eggs for 5 minutes in salted boiling water, topped with a drizzle of white vinegar. Reserve them for a moment in cold water.

Serve the vegetable quinoa in deep plates, surround with a little vinaigrette and place in the center, a soft-boiled egg that will be cut to run the yolk over the vegetables.
