Honey Mustard Lentil and Vegetable Bowls make a light and refreshing vegetarian dinner that's filled with zucchini, corn, carrots, red lentils, and an easy homemade honey mustard dressing.

Ever since I was a kid, I have loved pretty much anything that involves honey mustard. Now let's be honest, back in the day this mostly meant chicken fingers and fries, but these days I am making all kinds of yummy dishes using honey mustard. And I especially love it paired with veggies. It's like a sweetened up vinaigrette in the best way, plus I have found it can make non-veggie lovers eat a bowl of veggies without a second thought.

This dish all starts with a hearty base of red lentils. You could also use green or black lentils and if lentils aren't your thing, you could use quinoa, brown rice, or farro. Next comes the veggies. This dish combines both cooked and fresh veggies. The zucchini, corn, and carrots are cooked until they are caramelized on the outside and then tossed with fresh cherry tomatoes and green onions. This is all tossed with the lentils, arugula, and the delicious honey mustard dressing. It makes a perfect meatless meal or cut the portions in half to use it as a salad or side dish.
