1 Roast lentils
Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan. Drain and rinse the lentils. Place them on a lined baking tray, spreading them in an even, thin layer. Roast for 5 min in the oven.
2 Coat lentils
Add the olive oil, honey, cumin powder and chilli flakes to a small bowl and whisk until fully combined. Drizzle over the lentils and roast for 10–15 min further or until the lentils are crispy. Sprinkle with salt.
3 Prep vegetables
Meanwhile, deseed and finely slice the pepper. Peel and slice the carrot into matchsticks. Halve the cherry tomatoes. Chop the lettuce roughly. Slice the cucumber into matchsticks.
4 Fry vegetables
Heat a large non-stick pan over a medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Once hot, add the carrot and pepper and cook with a pinch of salt for 5 min or until starting to soften. Add the cherry tomatoes and cook for 1 min further. Transfer the vegetables to a plate.
5 Fry halloumi
Cut the halloumi into slices. Return the pan to a medium heat with another drizzle of olive oil. Once hot, add the halloumi and fry for 1-2 min on each side until golden brown.
6 Assemble salad
Arrange the lettuce, cucumbers, bell peppers, carrots and cherry tomatoes on a serving plate. Top with the crispy lentils, fried halloumi slices, fresh mint leaves and pomegranate seeds. Drizzle with the balsamic vinegar and season with freshly ground black pepper.
