This one pan dinner is really healthy, really fast and really easy!  All you need are some veggies of choice, a ready-to-eat pack of smoked salmon and a can of lentils. Pre-prepare the veggies to save time and simply throw in the oven when ready.
Serves: 2-3
  • 2-3 cups mixed vegetables
  • 1 can black lentils
  • 2 fillets hot smoked salmon
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 whole head garlic
  • 1 cup soft greens
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp each salt and pepper
  • 2 Tbsp creme fraich, sour cream, feta or soft cream cheese
  1. Cut the vegetables into 1 inch sized cubes and place on a baking tray. Cut a lemon into quarters and also place on the tray. Cut the tip off of the garlic head and place in the tray, cut side up. Drizzle olive oil all over the tray and inside the garlic. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat oven to 350F/180C. When hot, place the tray inside and cook for 30-35 minutes, stirring once halfway.
  3. Remove from the oven and add the greens and lentils to the pan. Remove the head of garlic and set aside to cool. Stir ingredients together and mash the lemon wedges. Flake the salmon loosely and mix with the other ingredients. Once cooled to the touch, squeeze the garlic cloves out of the skin. Mash against the pan little and then stir in.
  4. To serve, pile onto plates.
  5. Using a teaspoon, dollop the feta or cream cheese (stir and mash in a little bowl to loosen if needed) around the edge of the plate in a few places.
Mixed vegetables could include carrots, beets, parsnip, swede, asparagus, cauliflower, broccoli, red onion, pumpkin, sweet potato, jerusalem artichoke, bell peppers or anything you like!
