Lentils with baked feta & tomatoes

Tasty lentils
This Lentils with baked feta and tomatoes recipe was inspired by that famous baked feta idea that took social media by storm earlier this year. I gave it a healthier spin and swapped the heavier pasta for lentils, making it a wholesome vegetarian meal or tasty side dish. The well-known combination of tomatoes, herbs, feta, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil is a delicious base to add to lentils.

Recipe developed for AMC Cookware
Serves 4


2 leeks, halved and thinly sliced

500 g mixed baby tomatoes, halved or quartered

2 slices feta cheese

30 ml (2 tbsp) olive oil

30 ml (2 tbsp) balsamic vinegar

finely grated rind and juice of 1 lemon

2 handfuls fresh herbs of your choice, like basil, Italian parsley, origanum and thyme

salt and pepper

250 ml (1 cup) uncooked brown lentils


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 °C.
  2. Place the leeks, tomatoes and feta in a single layer in an AMC 28 cm Gourmet Chef’s Pan. Pour over the oil and balsamic vinegar with half the lemon rind and some of the herbs. Season to taste.
  3. Roast for 25-30 minutes or until the tomatoes are cooked.
  4. Meanwhile, place lentils with 625 ml (2½ cups) water in an AMC 20 cm Gourmet Low. Heat over a medium temperature with the lid on until the Visiotherm® reaches the first red area.
  5. Simmer lentils for 25-30 minutes or until just cooked, but not mushy. (Don’t add salt as it will prevent the lentils from softening.)
  6. Remove the lentils from the heat, rinse and drain well.
  7. Gently mash the warm feta in the AMC 28 cm Gourmet Chef’s Pan with a spoon. Add the lentils and mix through.
  8. Sprinkle with remaining lemon rind and herbs. Serve as a side dish or light vegetarian meal.



  1. Serve this dish with dollops of your favourite pesto, if preferred.
