Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 onion , chopped
  • 1 tbsp garam masala
  • 1 tbsp turmeric
  • 200g red lentils
  • 400ml can coconut milk
  • small bunch coriander , chopped
  • cooked wholegrain basmati rice , to serve
  • coconut yogurt (dairy free) , to serve

For the roast cauliflower & squash base

  • 1 cauliflower , split into florets, the stalk cut into cubes
  • ½ large butternut squash , cut into cubes
  • 1 tbsp oil

Method

  • STEP 1

    For the base, heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Toss the cauliflower and squash in oil and spread it out on a large oven tray. Roast for 25 mins, or until tender. If you're making the base ahead of time, you can now freeze in an airtight container for up to a month. (Defrost fully before using in the next step.)

  • STEP 2

    Heat oil in a pan, then add the onion and cook until soft, stir in the spices and cook for 2 mins. Stir in the lentils, coconut milk and 200ml water and bring to a simmer.

  • STEP 3

    Cook for 20 mins, then add the roast veg and cook for a further 10 mins, adding a little water if it looks dry. Stir in the coriander. Serve with rice and yogurt.
