This recipe came together because of two things:
1. Im obsessed with everything caramelized at the moment. The subtly sweet caramelized buttery squash & carrot, and the caramelized lentils with molasses, is seriously just bliss in the mouth.
2. I wanted to design a recipe which was high in protein, but light. Just one serving of this dish is low in carbohydrates (not that we dont like carbs – we love carbs, but some nights you just want something light!), gluten free, under 350 calories (without dressing) and with near 30gr of protein ! 😮
This autumnal recipe is perfect for this time of year.. Its the end of summer, but its still kind of warm so you’re still enjoying salads, but its not that warm that you want cold food. You know what i mean right?
I dont tend to dress this warm salad because when you serve the warm vegetables on top of the spinach, it wilts it slightly, and it tastes really good and juicy without it! But if you want a dressing, then i’d recommend using Michelle’s Tahini Dressing !
Give this a go, trust me you wont regret it!!
