This easy dinner will become a household favorite at first bite. Roasted cauliflower is combined with freekeh and protein-rich sprouted lentils. While the cauliflower takes about 30 minutes to roast. You could steam it to save time, bringing the entire cook time down to 20 minutes. Topped with a creamy, herby dill tahini sauce, this filling dish may have simple flavors, but it's anything but boring.

Hi. I was wondering if this could be frozen (without the dill tahini sauce). If not, how long would it keep in the fridge for leftovers?

Thanks!
