“I had this at a party, and it was SO delicious!! I made it myself one day, and used what I had: delicata squash instead of pumpkin, and feta instead of goat cheese. We ate it with tortilla chips, and it was so good. Hope you enjoy.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the pumpkin or butternut cubes, garlic cloves, and onion quarters in a plastic bag, add the salt and paprika and shake until well covered. Add half the olive oil and shake again.
  2. Brush roasting pan with 1 tablespoon of the oil, then arrange the pumpkin or butternut, garlic, and onions over the base. Add the tomatoes, brush with oil, and prick the tops with a toothpick or fork. Trickle 1-2 tablespoons oil over the top and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Roast in a preheated oven at 400 for 10 minutes, then remove the tomatoes just as the skins begin to split. Continue roasting until the onions and pumpkin or butternut are tender.
  4. Remove from the oven and divide between 4 salad plates. To each plate add 2 tablespoons cooked lentils, a quarter of the goat cheese. Sprinkle with lemon juice and about 2-4 teaspoons olive oil.
