Made with butternut squash and lentils, this one-pot is hearty, comforting and budget-friendly. To make the recipe vegetarian simply omit the bacon and add spinach.

Ingredients

  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 600g butternut squash, cut into chunks
  • 4 sprigs thyme
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 Knorr Vegetable Stock Pot dissolved in 400ml boiling water
  • 325g can green lentils, drained
  • Handful baby spinach leaves or 80g bacon, cut into strips, optional
  • Crusty bread or quinoa to serve, optional

Method

  1. Heat a splash of oil in a pan and fry the bacon (if using) until cooked. Add the garlic and squash and fry for another minute.
  2. Stir in the sprigs of thyme, tomatoes, stock and lentils and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes or until the squash is tender.
  3. Add the spinach (if using) and season with pepper. Cook until the spinach wilts and serve with crusty bread or quinoa.
