- Cook the lentils according to the package. Set aside once cooked.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with foil. Place the carrots, zucchini, and mushrooms on the baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 35 minutes.
- In the meantime, make the mashed potatoes using my Classic Vegan Mashed Potatoes recipe. Set aside until you are ready to serve.
- Now make the white wine sauce. Heat 1 Tbsp of olive oil in a medium sized pot on medium/high heat. Sauté the onion until it is soft and starts to get golden on the edges. Add the garlic and season with salt and pepper. Next, add all of the lemon juice, white wine, vegetable broth, and parsley. Bring to a boil. Once boiled, put the lid on, turn the heat down to to low, and simmer for 10 minutes to cook off the wine.
- It is now time to prepare your meal! Put a large scoop of mashed potatoes on a plate or bowl. Top it with a scoop of the roasted vegetables and a scoop of lentils. Finally, top everything with a generous scoop of the white wine sauce.
