Probably the best way to eat veg is in a tomato sauce with loads of cheese, some lentils and baked in the oven.
Add a good dollop of mint yoghurt, some crusty bread and your good to go, even carnivores would like this one hahaha.
225 g block of halloumi, cut into 8 slices.
100 g of feta.
400 g tin of lentils.
1 courgette, cut into chunks.
1 aubergine, cut into chunks.
1 red onion, cut into quarters.
4 sprigs of fresh thyme, leaves only.
1 tbsp of dried oregano.
1 tbsp of runny honey.
700 g of tomato passata or homemade tomato sauce.
Cheats Mint Yogurt Ingredients
2 tsps of good quality mint sauce.
3 tbsps of natural yoghurt.
In a large roasting tray add the veg, the fresh thyme, season with salt and pepper and a good drizzle of olive oil. Mix together and place into a preheated oven set at 200℃ for 20 minutes. Stir it after 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes carefully remove the roasting tray from the oven. Pour in the passata or tomato sauce, the lentils including any juices from the can, the oregano, season and mix. Arrange the halloumi slices on top, break up the feta and place in and around the halloumi. Drizzle the honey over the halloumi, sprinkle with a little more oregano and pop back into the oven. Bake for another 15-20 minutes or till the halloumi is golden.
For my cheats mint yoghurt simply mix the mint sauce, yoghurt and a small pinch of salt in a bowl and hey presto.
Serve with a side salad and a nice big dollop of mint yoghurt.
