- Boil the lentils until cooked
- Wash the beetroot and chop into quarters. Drizzle with olive oil and grill for about 20 minutes, stirring half way through.
- For the caramalised onion: chop the onion and simmer in a small amount of water over low heat. drizzle the balsamic vinegar over the onions once cooked. After about 10-15 minutes add the chutney and cook for about 5 minutes. Add water and stir occasionally to prevent the onions sticking and burning.
