Ingredients

  • 500g Essential Carrots, trimmed and peeled
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 200g Waitrose Sable Seedless Grapes, halved
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp clear honey
  • 2 x 400g 400g cans Essential Lentils, drained and rinsed
  • 150g Essential Greek Feta Strength 3, crumbled
  • Shredded mint leaves, to serve (optional)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220oC, gas mark 7. Cut the carrots into thin spears or wedges. Toss with 1 tbsp oil, season and spread out in a roasting tin. Roast for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a separate roasting tin, combine the grapes, shallots, vinegar, honey and remaining 2 tbsp oil; season.

  2. Give the carrots a stir and add the lentils to the roasting tin with them, then return to the oven. Put the grape tin on the same shelf if possible (or on a lower shelf if not). Roast everything for a final 10 minutes.

  3. Transfer the carrots and lentils to a platter and spoon over the roasted grapes and juices from the tin. Scatter with the crumbled feta and mint leaves, if using, and serve immediately.

Cook’s tip

Vegan? Swap the honey for maple syrup and use a vegan cheese alternative instead of feta. You could also roast cubes of tofu to serve on top.
