This is a variation on a recipe found on a supermarket recipe card, modified to match what was knocking about at the time - very nice it was too.

Mise en place

  • Preheat the oven to 200° C (400° F - gas 6), [fan oven 180° C & reduce cooking time by 10 mins per hour]

Method

  1. Toss the squash chunks in a little olive oil and arrange on a roasting tray. Sprinkle with the rosemary and thyme leaves. Alternatively, use an oil spray.
  2. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes until softened.
  3. Boil the lentils for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender.
  4. Heat a few tablespoons of olive oil in a wok or frying pan and gently sauté the onions, garlic, peppers and chorizo chunks for 5 minutes.
  5. Mix the mustard in with the cream and pour into the pan and heat to a simmer.
  6. Add the lentils and squash, season with salt and pepper, dress with the parsley and serve immediately.

Variations

Use any seasonal herbs to flavour the roasting squash.

As an alternative, sliced meats would be nice, but you probably want to add those at the last minute rather than fry the with the onions.

Chef's notes

Follow the RSPCA Think Pig Checklist to make sure that your pork has come from pigs that have been reared to higher welfare standards.
