Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees. On two baking sheets, arrange carrots, onion, and squash; drizzle with 2 tablespoons oil, and season with salt and pepper. Roast, turning once, until caramelized and tender, about 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, place lentils and shallot in a medium saucepan and cover with water by two inches. Bring to a boil, then simmer, covered, until lentils are tender, about 20 minutes. Drain; discard shallot. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Combine vinegar and mustard. Pour remaining 3 tablespoons oil in a slow steady stream, whisking constantly. Toss lentils and celery with vinaigrette and season with salt and pepper. Spoon over roasted vegetables. Garnish with celery leaves.

Lentils are a great source of protein and fiber. They are a healthy carb that pairs well with either meat or fish. The roasted veggies in the dish are a wonderful seasonal side to any meal.
