    Serves: 2


    150g puy lentils, rinsed
    2 carrots, peeled and diced
    2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    1 small head (800g) cauliflower
    3 tbsp white wine vinegar
    15g grated parmigiano reggiano

Season, then fry over a medium-high heat for 3 minutes on each side. Put in a roasting tin with the florets; pour over 1⁄2 tbsp oil. Season, sprinkle with 1 tbsp vinegar and roast for 10 minutes. Sprinkle over the cheese; roast for 5 minutes.

    3. In a small bowl, mix the parsley, cornichons and mustard with the remaining 1 tbsp oil and 2 tbsp vinegar; season. Serve the steaks on top of the warm lentils with the salsa verde poured over.
