Healthy lentil and butternut warm salad

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag chopped butternut (cheat’s version, it’s Monday!)
  • 1 can lentils (cheating again, you can cook them from scratch)
  • Feta/ Goat’s cheese
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Smoked Olives (optional)
  • Avocado
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Fresh Rocket
  • Balsamic Vinegar and Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Heat oven to 200 degrees. Lay butternut on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Roast the butternut until it’s almost done, then add the pumpkin seeds and cherry tomatoes for the last 5 minutes or so of roasting. Simply mix the roaster butternut with all the other ingredients and serve warm.
