Serves: 6 (full servings) Cook Time: 45 mins

Ingredients

For the salad:

  • 1 cup Rosevale lentils
  • 2 cups stock or broth (we use Nutra Organics Broth)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup grated carrot (approx 2 medium carrots)
  • 1 cup grated beetroot (approx 1 medium beetroot)
  • ½ red onion, finely chopped
  • ½ cup pine nuts
  • 2 Tbsp fresh mint
  • 1 tsp coconut oil


For the dressing:

  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp tamari sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

1

In a medium saucepan, add the lentils and 2 cups of stock or broth and 1 cup of water. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook for 15min until tender. The lentils should be firm to the touch.

2

While the lentils are cooking, toast the pine nuts: Heat a small frying pan on a medium heat. Add the coconut oil and then the pine nuts. Cook for 2-3 minutes, turning frequently until slightly golden. Remove and set aside on a paper towel while you prepare the rest of the salad.

3

Once the lentils are cooked, quickly rinse under cold water (you don’t want to wash away the flavour from the stock) and drain. Then place in a salad bowl.

4

Add the grated beetroot, carrot and chopped red onion to the salad bowl and toss.

5

Top with the pine nuts and fresh mint. Pour over the salad dressing and toss again. Add salt and pepper to taste.
