Method:

Preheat the oven to 280 degree

Bake for 20- 25 minutes until vegetables are roasted, making sure you flip vegetables while roasting until they are crispy and caramelized from all ends

In a large bowl , Add drained lentils, freshly chopped kale, coriander leaves, chopped fennel leaves, lemon juice, salt & pepper, olive oil and crumbled feta cheese

Toss well and serve it on a plate and top it up with warm roasted vegetables, adjust salt & pepper as per your liking

Drizzle some coconut cream and sprinkle some almonds, pine nuts or any nuts of your choice and enjoy with a crusty bread or flatbread

You can add pumpkin, kumara, eggplant too

Notes:

  • I roasted chickpeas separately and baked for bit longer to get crispy texture
  • You can use tin beetroot if you want this to avoid peeling beetroot and getting you hands dirty
  • If you want to make lentils warm and crispy then add lentils in the roasted vegetable tray in last 5 minutes of its roasting and then add all the vegetables together in a bowl adding coriander leaves, fennel leaves, kale leaves, olive oil, lemon juice , salt & pepper while serving  and serve it with coconut cream and chopped nuts and enjoy
  • For this recipe I used New Zealand garlic and adding whole garlic taste beautiful in this recipe but you chop it or smash it if you want
  • If you don’t find fennel leaves at this time of the year you can add parsley instead
