Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Cut the cauliflower into small florets. Chop the peeled pumpkin into 2cm chunks. Place the cauliflower, pumpkin and mild North Indian spice blend (see ingredients list) on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Season with salt and pepper, drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat. Arrange in a single layer, then roast for 20-25 minutes or until tender. TIP: Cut the veggies to the correct size so they cook in the allocated time!
While the veggies are roasting, thinly slice the red onion (see ingredients list). In a small bowl, combine the water, rice wine vinegar (for the onion) and a good pinch of sugar and salt. Scrunch the red onion in your hands, then add to the pickling liquid and stir to coat. Set aside until serving.
Drain and rinse the lentils. Roughly chop the parsley. In a small bowl, mix together the mango chutney, rice wine vinegar (for the dressing), brown sugar, the salt and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with pepper.
When the veggies have 10 minutes remaining, heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the slivered almonds and toast, stirring, for 3-4 minutes, or until golden. Transfer to a plate. Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the lentils and cook, tossing, for 4-5 minutes or until softened and heated through.
In a large bowl, add the pumpkin and cauliflower, lentils, currants, spinach & rocket mix and 1/2 the parsley. Add the mango chutney dressing and toss to coat just before serving.
Drain the pickled onions. Divide the lentil salad between bowls. Top with the pickled onions and the Greek yoghurt. Garnish with the slivered almonds and remaining parsley.
