Vegan salad packed with flavour as well as goodness!



1 large sweet potato, skin left on, scrubbed and cut into medium chunks

1 cauliflower, cut into large florets, stalk diced

1 tbsp garam masala

3 tbsp groundnut oil

2 garlic cloves

200g puy lentils

thumb-sized piece ginger, grated

1 tsp Dijon mustard

2 carrots

¼ red cabbage

½ small pack coriander

  8. Coarsely grate the carrots, shred the cabbage and roughly chop the coriander.
  9. Squeeze over the remaining lime juice and season to taste.
  10. Divide the lentil mixture between four bowls (or four containers if saving and chilling).
  11. Top each serving with a quarter of the carrot slaw and a quarter of the sweet potato and cauliflower mix.
