Lentil Patties with Lettuce and Yogurt

What you'll need:
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons dried French green lentils
Coarse salt
1 small red onion, half finely diced, half thinly sliced
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, plus more for serving

1 head lettuce, such as oak leaf, Bibb, or escarole, leaves separated
1/2 cup plain yogurt
Cayenne pepper
8 to 12 caper berries

Steps:
1: Boil lentils in a medium saucepan. Reduce heat, season with salt, and simmer until lentils are tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and let cool. 

2: Combine lentils, 1/2 teaspoon salt, diced red onion, eggs, breadcrumbs, and parsley in a medium bowl. Transfer half of mixture to a food processor; pulse until smooth. Fold into remaining lentil mixture until well combined. Using a 1/4-cup measure as a scoop, shape mixture into eight 2 1/2-inch patties.

3: Heat a heavy, large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil. Add patties in a single layer. Cook, turning once, until crisp and brown, about 4 minutes. Transfer patties to serving plates and let cool slightly.

4: Divide lettuce leaves among serving plates; top with lentil patties. Divide yogurt among plates. Season with salt, sprinkle with cayenne, and drizzle with olive oil. Garnish with caper berries, sliced onion, and parsley.
