How it's done

Tomato & bean patties (makes 6)

In a food processor, blitz all the ingredients until smooth and shape into 6 evenly-sized patties. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

Bake for approx. 25 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 180°C (convection). Turn halfway through the cooking time.

Roast peppers

After half the cooking time, roast the pepper halves on the oven tray alongside the patties. Peel the roast peppers, cut into strips and marinate with the garlic, lemon juice, basil, oil and salt.

Lentil pasta

Cook the pasta in salted water according to the packet instructions, drain.

Avocado pesto

In a food processor, puree all the ingredients until smooth.

Serving and garnishing

Divide the pasta between 2 bowls and top with the peppers, patties and the pesto. Garnish with pine nuts, rocket, tomatoes and zoodles.

Good to know
Tip: The peppers are easiest to peel if placed in a freezer bag as soon as they are removed from the oven and left to cool a little in the bag.
