Roast Winter Veg with Lentils.…or How to get a vegetable hater to love vegetables!
Roasting vegetables is nothing short of magic. It coaxes out truly badass flavours from all kinds of vegetables.
Have you tasted roasted onions? YOU SO MUST! A little splash of olive oil, a sprinkle of salt, 30 minutes in a hot oven. The outcome of this experiment summed up in 3 letters – OMG.
Ever tried roasting green beans? Parboil, blanche and wipe dry tender green beans. Same treatment as onions. Unbelievable flavour! Make sure you choose tender haricot beans and not the regular light green variety that is stringy with tougher seeds, which is not good for roasting at all.

Coming to the recipe featured in this post, it is the perfect vegan and gluten free main course you can serve at a dinner party. This even works as a salad that you can prep and put away the components ie. roasted veg, cooked lentils and salad dressing in airtight containers in the refrigerator and assemble this couple of times a week for a quick lunchbox or dinner for one.
Experiment with vegetables in season in your region for the best tasting dish. I’m having this for a Sunday dinner. It feels good to have a clean, guilt-tree dinner after all the weekend indulgences. What’s your favourite dinner to end the week?
