  1. Heat a large sauté pan with oil. Add onions and Swiss chard stems and cook until golden. Add cauliflower and continue to cook for another 2 minutes. Stir in remaining Swiss chard leaves, lemon juice, zest, and season with salt and pepper. Add 1-2 Tbsp (15-30 mL) of water, cover with a lid and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  2. Once cauliflower and Swiss chard are tender, stir in cooked lentils. Cook for another 2 minutes. Stir in Parmesan cheese, and season to taste with salt and ground black pepper, as desired. Garnish with remaining cheese.

Swap out Swiss chard for kale depending on what you have on hand.
