  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Wrap each beetroot in foil and place on a baking tray. Roast for 30 mins.

  2. Step 2

    Line another baking tray with baking paper. Place the carrots, parsnip and pumpkin on lined tray and drizzle with 2 tsp oil. Season. Roast with the beetroot for a further 30 mins or until the beetroot is tender and the carrot mixture is caramelised.

  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, place the vinegar, mustard, sugar and remaining oil in a screw-top jar. Shake until well combined. Season.

  4. Step 4

    Remove the foil from the beetroot. Wearing gloves to avoid staining your hands, peel the beetroot and cut into wedges. Arrange beetroot, rocket, carrot mixture and lentils on a serving platter. Drizzle with dressing. Sprinkle with almond and goat’s cheese. Season with pepper and serve immediately.

Recipe tip

Don’t let that leftover Dijon mustard go to waste – store it in the fridge and use it to make our easy Mustard and Apple Chicken Bake.
