Ingredients

    1 Tbsp (15 mL) olive oil

    1 cup (250 mL) small diced red onion

    1 1/2 cups (375 mL) quartered and thinly sliced zucchini

    1 cup (250 mL) small diced red or orange bell pepper

    2 cups (500 mL) finely sliced kale, stem removed

    1 can (14 oz/398 mL) fire roasted diced tomatoes, drained

    ¼ cup (60 mL) chopped sundried tomatoes, packed in oil

    1 Tbsp (15 mL) dried oregano

    1 tsp (5 mL) lemon juice

    1 1/2 cups (375 mL) cooked green lentils

    1 cup (250 mL) cooked quinoa

    ¾ cup (190 mL) grated Swiss or white cheddar cheese

    ½ cup (125 mL) crumbled feta cheese

    to taste, salt and ground black pepper


Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F (200˚C). Heat oil in a large sauté pan, add onions and cook on medium heat until golden. Add zucchini, pepper, kale, and cook on medium-high heat until tender and most of the liquid has evaporated.
  2. Add drained tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, and oregano and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Stir in lemon juice, lentils, quinoa, grated cheese, and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Spread mixture out in a lined or buttered 10x10 baking dish and sprinkle with panko crumbs and feta cheese. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes, or set the oven to broil to toast the crumbs and cheese.
  4. Remove from oven, allow to sit for 5 minutes before serving.
