Roast veggies with goat’s cheese and lentils

Roast veggies with goatåÕs cheese and lentils




  • 3-4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 200g beetroot, peeled and diced (approx 2 cm dice)
  • 200g green beans, top and tailed
  • 300g brussel sprouts, ends trimmed and cut in half
  • 300g pumpkin, peeled and cut into approx 5cm piece
  • 1 small brown onion
  • half a cup finely diced carrot
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (400g) tin whole tomatoes, strained and roughly diced
  • 1 and a half cups finely shredded silverbeet, stems removed
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 x 400g tin lentils, drained
  • 110g goats cheese log, crumbled


Preheat oven to 220C.

Place beetroot, green beans, brussel sprouts and pumpkin into a large bowl; add 3 tablespoons of olive oil, a good sprinkle of salt and pepper then toss. Place on an oven tray and bake for 35 minutes.

While they bake, add 1 tablespoon olive oil to a medium sized pot, heat then add onion and carrot. Saute for 3-4 minutes and add garlic, saute for 1-2 minutes.

Add diced tomatoes, give a stir then add silverbeet, salt and pepper.

Stir to combine, reduce heat to a gently simmer and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

When lentils and vegetables are ready, serve the lentils topped with roasted vegetables and sprinkle with goats cheese in bowls.


  • If you prefer to use dried lentils, by all means, soak lentils first then add. You will need to cook them longer so just keep testing them until done.
  • I love the fact I can have a really tasty and healthy meal in 20 minutes due to the ease of tinned lentils- but thats just me!
  • If you are feeding 4 adults, add an extra tin of lentils.
  • If brussel sprouts or beetroot dont get your taste buds going then substitute your favourite roast veggies.
  • The lentils will also taste delicious for lunch in a toasted sandwich, on slightly charred toast brushed with garlic or wrapped in a tortilla wrap (the only way my 3 year old will eat lentils!).
  • For the meat lovers, serve with chicken or lamb.
  • Add semi-dried tomatoes for extra flavour
