I had dinner last night at GlassHalFull in Carrboro. I have dined there on a number of occasions, and the food is always excellent. Last night, however, I had a bowl of cream of lentil soup with goat cheese and tiny croutons that was extraordinary! Is there any chance you can get the recipe? -- K.K.-F., Carrboro
At once earthy and elegant, Puree of French Green Lentil Soup serves up evidence by the ladleful of why Ricky Moore has won a solid following since taking over as executive chef at GlassHalFull (106 S. Greensboro St.; 967-9784; www.glasshalfullcarrboro.com) last July. Moore is happy to share the recipe.
