Little lentils are often overlooked but their small size is what makes them so useful. They are a great addition to curries and soups and can be combined with mince to make healthier burger patties. Lentils are an easy way to add extra fibre to your favourite meals.
1. To make the dressing, combine the olive oil, lemon juice and zest, honey and garlic in a screw top jar. Shake and season to taste.
Cook the orzo according to packet directions. Drain and rinse.
3. Heat a dash of oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook haloumi for 1 minute on each side or until it is golden brown. Remove from the pan and set aside.
4. Place the drained Wattie's Lentils in a large bowl with the drained orzo, onion, cucumber, tomatoes, mint, parsley, olives and haloumi.
5. Add the dressing and toss gently to combine.
Try 50g of crumbled feta in place of the Haloumi.
