Toss zucchini spaghetti with 2 tablespoons lemon juice and a pinch of sea salt and set aside until water is released.

Peel, grate and finely chop the onions and garlic. Rinse the lentils under cold water. Heat 1 tablespoon coconut oil in a deep pan, add diced onion and garlic, then add lentils and tomato paste. Then pour everything with 300 ml water and add balsamic vinegar. Add a sprig of rosemary and a bay leaf and fry the lentils, removing the rosemary and bay leaf before serving.

After 8-10 minutes of cooking, add another 200 ml of water and mix in the chopped tomatoes and pumpkin seeds. Add dry spices.
After 25 minutes of the total cooking time, the lentils are done. Add freshly chopped basil and stir until combined. The Bolognese sauce is now ready.
Drain the water from the zucchini, arrange on a plate and pour over the Bolognese sauce. Garnish with cherry tomatoes, fresh basil leaves and pumpkin seeds.
