Instructions

1

a) Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9. Trim the aubergine, then cut into roughly 2cm pieces.

b) Pop the tomatoes onto a piece of foil with a drizzle of oil. Season with salt and pepper. Fold the foil, sealing on all sides to create a parcel.

c) Put the aubergine onto a large baking tray. Add a generous drizzle of oil, season, then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer. Place the tomato parcel alongside.

d) When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until soft and golden, 17-18 mins. Turn halfway through.

2

a) Meanwhile, tear the ciabatta into roughly 2cm chunks and pop onto another baking tray. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. 

b) Bake on the middle shelf of the oven until golden, 6-8 mins.

c) Once golden, remove from the oven and set aside.

3

a) While the croutons bake, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). 

b) Drain and rinse the lentils in a sieve.

4

a) Heat a drizzle of oil in a medium frying pan on medium heat.

b) Once hot, add the bacon. Stir-fry until golden, 4-5 mins.

c) Stir in garlic and stir-fry for 1 min. 

c) Add the lentils to the pan and stir together until piping hot, 1-2 mins. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then remove from the heat. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw meat. Cook bacon thoroughly.

5

a) In a large bowl, combine the balsamic glaze, sun-dried tomato paste, sugar and olive oil for the dressing (see pantry for both amounts). Season with salt and pepper. 

b) When ready, add the bacon, lentils, roasted aubergine and tomatoes to the dressing and toss to coat.

c) Allow to sit for 1 min to absorb the flavours.

6

a) Just before serving, mix the baby leaves and croutons into your salad, then share between your bowls. 

b) Crumble the Greek style salad cheese over the top and drizzle with the yoghurt.

Enjoy!
