Ingredients

Instructions

  • Cube the butternut squash, slice the onion and finely chop the garlic. Add to a large pan or wok and sauté on medium heat with olive oil, salt and pepper until caramelized.
  • Pour the wine in and allow the alcohol to evaporate for 2-3 minutes. 
  • Add the spices and 1/2 cup of water. Simmer until the squash is tender (15-20 minutes, depending on cubes size).
  • Add the lentils and the gravy granules or cornstarch & veg stock powder, stir well and heat until the liquid starts to thicken. Turn off the heat and set aside.
  • In the meantime brush well the potato skin with water. Pierce the skin with a fork and microwave for 5-7 minutes at 800W.
  • Cut the potato into 3-4mm slices (caution, it might be super hot!)
  • Fill the bottom of a tray or monoportion pots with the lentil and squash mixture, cover with potato slices and top with some bread crumbs and a drizzle of olive oil.
  • Bake in a 180°C (350°F) preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden brown.
  • Serve with additional gravy, if you like, and a glass of good red wine.
