Mezze: Beet, Burrata, & Lentil Salad

beet-burrata-lentil-salad_main

Today’s blog post is short and sweet. With just five ingredients (or six, depending on how you count salt), this recipe is a quick and easy salad with flare. It is healthy and packed with protein; the perfect little lunch to pack for work or a picnic. Burrata adds a luxe creaminess, which perfectly compliments the earthy roasted beets. –jacque

Ingredients

1 bunch beets

1 cup lentils, cooked {shortcut: use pre-cooked lentils!}

2 tablespoons walnut oil

salt, to taste

8 ounces burrata

3-4 sprigs cilantro

Directions

1. Wash beets and cut in half. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and roast in oven set to 300 degrees. This step can take an hour or more, depending on the size of your beets, so plan accordingly.

2. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together lentils, walnut oil, and salt.

3. Add beets once they are cooled and peeled.

4. Top the salad with a hearty helping of creamy burrata and a few sprigs of cilantro. Voila!
