Free Healthy Recipe - Warm winter lentil and Romanesco salad

Dairy free, Gluten free, Low GI, Low sugar, Wheat Free

Serve it warm and a salad becomes appealing in winter. Especially when it's as nourishing and delicious as this one. If you haven't tried Romanesco you are in for a treat. Save time and roast the whole head, and use half to make this salad and the other half as a vegetable side dish. Once tasted, I promise you'll be hooked!

3 tbs olive oil
1 lemon juiced
1/3 cup chopped fresh herbs, mint, parsley, oregano
1 tbs salted capers, rinsed and blotted dry
1 clove garlic, crushed

Preheat the oven to 180C

Rinse the lentils thoroughly and add to a pan with 2 cups cold water. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 25 - 30 minutes or until tender.
The lentils should hold their shape.

Arrange the Romanesco on a baking tray and drizzle with half a tablespoon of olive oil. Place in the oven to roast for 15 - 20 minutes or until the stalks are tender when pierced with a sharp knife.

Use a jar or small bowl to combine the remaining olive oil with lemon juice, herbs, mustard, capers, and garlic.

Remove the Romanesco from the oven and toss through the lentil and dressing while still warm.

Serve as a vegan main dish for 2 people, or as a side dish with grilled salmon or chicken for 4 people.
