Instructions
 

For the Roasted Vegetables

  • Preheat oven to 425* F
  • In a small cup, combine oil, apple cider vinegar, garlic and onion powder, thyme and sage. Mix to combine.
  • Place all veggies onto a large sheet pan. Drizzle with the oil and vinegar mixture and using your hands, toss to coat everything evenly. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Roast for 40-50 minutes, stopping to mix the veggies after about 25 minutes.

To cook the Lentils

  • While the veggies are in the oven cook the lentils. Combine lentils and water in a medium sized pot. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to simmer.
  • Simmer lentils for 15-20 minutes, until they are cooked but not mushy. Drain the remaining excess water and set aside.

To make the Dressing

  • After the lentils are simmering, in a small bowl, combine tahini, apple cider vinegar, garlic powder, salt and black pepper. Stir to combine. The tahini will get very thick.
  • Slowly and a little bit at a time, stir in the water. The dressing will start to look creamy and thick. Add 3-4 tablespoons of water depending how runny you'd like the dressing.

To Put the Bowls Together

  • Into you bowl, add lentils and veggies. Sprinkle everything with shelled pumpkin seeds and a drizzle of the apple cider dressing. Enjoy!
