High in healthy fiber, folate and magnesium, lentils are superstar contributors to a healthy heart. Studies have shown that they — along with other legumes — can reduce the risk of coronary heart disease by keeping arteries clear to maximize the flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients through the body.

Ingredients

Preparation

Heat the oven to 350º F. Place the onion, leek, carrot and turnip in a small roasting pan. Add the thyme, half the oil and season with salt and pepper.

Roast the vegetables until they begin to brown, about 20 minutes. Add the lentils and the stock or water. Season the lentils with salt then cover the pan and continue roasting until the lentils are tender, about 1 hour.

Dress the lentils with the remaining oil and the vinegar. Allow the lentils to cool to room temperature. Adjust the seasoning if necessary, add the parsley and serve on a bed of frisee.
