Roast Carrot, Lentil and Walnut Salad

We’ve recently started ordering an organic box again (I’m not actually sure why we stopped) and I look forward to our weekly delivery of interesting organic veg. Because you don’t know 100% what you’re going to get it means that I need to be a bit more creative to make sure everything is used up and not waste anything – I like a challenge! This week we got lots of pumpkins, squashes and carrots, very autumnal.

I decided to make a lovely warm salad by roasting some carrots and combing them with some puy lentils, walnuts, rocket and figs. They result was so good – the sweet roast carrots work really well with the earthy lentils, crunchy nuts and peppery rocket.
I coated my lentils in my favourite go – to apple cider vinegar salad dressing which I’ve been making for years. It’s perfect with salads, slaws or even steamed veggies.
You could swap the carrots for squash, pumpkin or even parsnip and it would be super delicious.
