  • 680 g baby or new potatoes

  • 4 tbsp olive oil, divided

  • 4 tsp dried thyme, divided

  • 7 1/2 tsp soy sauce, divided

  • 1 lemon, zested, divided

  • 775 g head cabbage, core removed and cut in 8 even slices

  • 1 large onion, diced

  • 5 cups quartered cremini mushrooms

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 540-mL can lentils, drained and rinsed

  • 1 400-mL can coconut milk

  • Position rack in centre of oven and preheat to 400F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment.

  • Arrange cabbage slices on second prepared sheet. Whisk 1 tbsp oil, 1 tsp soy sauce and remaining lemon zest in a small bowl. Brush over cabbage.

  • Roast until potatoes and cabbage are lightly browned and fork-tender, about 30 min.

  • Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan over medium-high. Add remaining 2 tbsp oil, then onion. Cook, stirring often, until softened, 4 min. Add mushrooms, garlic and remaining 3 tsp thyme. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms have released all their liquid, about 7 min.
