Roasted Root Veggies and Lentil Salad
with cumin-spiced yogurt dressing

Active: 20 min Total: 35 min
Rutabagas and parsnips are in season and they go so well with carrots, of course. Root vegetables are best roasted and we bring all these ingredients together with a cumin-spiced yogurt dressing.
Smarts: Chop veggies so they're about the same size, which means they'll cook more evenly.

Veggies were great! I used left-over pork roast, cooked in crock pot with balsamic glaze.

The marinade didn't give my pork loin much flavor.
