  • ½ cup green lentils
  • 100g walnuts, roasted
  • ½ bunch parsley
  • 60 ml olive oil

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced) and line a baking tray with baking paper.

Transfer kangaroo to prepared baking tray and cook in preheated oven for 5 - 10 minutes, depending on its thickness. Remove from oven and rest for 10 minutes.

  7. To make the salad, toss together the roasted vegetables, cooked lentils, walnuts, parsley and dressing, until well combined.
