    100g baby plum tomatoes, halved

    3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

    1 tsp cumin seeds

    3. Place the remaining oil, vinegar and seasoning in a bowl. Add the drained warm lentils, parsley, pine nuts, onion, warm tomatoes and roasted asparagus. Toss gently together and serve warm or at room temperature piled into pittas.
