Ingredients

For the Curry Veggies

  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 eggplant
  • 2 carrots
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 head garlic
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tsp curry powder
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • salt to taste
  • several twists freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 ½ cups of water

For the Lentil Puree

  • 1 cup dry lentils
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • salt to taste
  • several twists freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Chop the zucchini, eggplant, carrots, tomatoes, onion, and pepper into thick circles. Split the garlic head into cloves and peel them.
  3. Place the chopped veggies (except the tomatoes) into a large bowl and season with the lemon juice, soy sauce, curry powder, nutritional yeast, salt, and black pepper. Mix everything carefully and leave for about 15 mins.
  4. Put the seasoned veggies in a large baking pan. Add the water and top with the tomato circles. Bake for about 45 mins.
  5. For the lentil puree, chop the carrots and onion into 2-3 large pieces. Place them together with the lentils in a pot with boiling water and cook for 20 mins. When it is ready, drain the lentils, carrots, and onion and put them in a food processor until smooth. You may need to add about a half cup of broth if it is too thick.
  6. Serve the curry veggies with the lentil puree and sprinkle with some sesame seeds. Enjoy!

Notes

Whеn I season the veggies in a large bowl I prefer not to add the tomato circles as they often fall apart. I add them on top of the other vegetables in the baking pan so they can keep the moisture of the others.
