Lentil salad with tomatoes, olives & fresh herbs

I love the idea of this salad as a side with other course, some meats or even Quorn.




I love lentil salads, they are both healthy and delicious. Lentils are particularly rich in fiber, lean protein and iron. This fresh salad makes use of canned lentils, a cupboard staple. I use lentil though out  the year, as a base for salads in the summer and for hearty stews in the winter. Lentils have a mild taste and they take on a delicious flavour in this salad when combined with tomatoes, cucumber, olives and loads of fresh herbs. This salad is perfect as a take- along lunch or light dinner.






(Serves 4 )

1 ¼ cup green lentils ( precooked).

200 grams cherry tomatoes

1 medium  cucumber

1 shallot

1 red bell pepper, seeds and ribs removed

20 kalamata olives ( chopped)

1 cup fresh parsley ( chopped)

½ cup fresh basil ( chopped)

¼ cup fresh oregano ( chopped).

1 cup baby rocket…

roasted eggplant


  • 2 medium eggplants
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • juice of 1 medium lemon
  • 6 large garlic cloves, minced


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Cut the eggplants in half lengthwise.  Using a sharp knife cut slashes into the flesh. Don’t cut all the way through.   Put the halves onto a baking sheet.

Peel all the garlic cloves.  Crush the garlic and mix it with 2 spoons of olive oil and the lemon juice till you have a sauce.

Drizzle the olive oil over the eggplant. Use your fingers…
