5 Tbsps olive oil
2 ozs kale leaves
1 garlic clove
½ handful cilantro

Preparation steps


Halve pumpkin, remove seeds, peel, cut into 2 cm pieces, and spread on part of a baking tray lined with baking paper. Season with salt, pepper, cumin, and chili flakes. Drizzle the pumpkin with 1 tablespoon oil and bake in a preheated oven at 200 °C / 400 °F for 15 minutes.


Along the way, clean kale, wash, pluck from leaf veins and shred greens into pieces. After 15 minutes, add to the squash on the free side of the baking sheet, drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil and bake for another 10 minutes, until the squash is lightly browned and the kale is crisp.


Meanwhile, for the dressing, peel and finely chop the garlic. Wash the coriander, shake dry, pluck the leaves and chop finely. Mix lemon juice, vinegar, tahini, pepper, remaining oil and garlic, stir in 4 tablespoons warm water and mix in cilantro.


Cook lentil noodles in plenty of boiling salted water according to package directions for 7-9 minutes until al dente.


Drain the pasta, drain it and put it in a bowl. Season the dressing with salt and pepper, add 3/4 of it to the pasta and mix well. Mix in squash and kale and drizzle everything with remaining dressing. Arrange the lentil pasta salad in bowls and garnish with black sesame seeds.
