A great way to deal with usual summer glut of squashes.

This was really simple to make and is delicious hot or cold.

The harlequin squash is an ideal size for 2 people and its dense flesh does not turn watery when cooked.

  4. Boil, covered for about 12 minutes or until soft.
  5. Remove the squash when cooked and allow to cool. Reserve the cooking water
  6. Cover the lentils with 3 cups of the reserved cooking water, bring to the boil, stir in 1 teaspoon of bullion and simmer for 35 minutes - adding extra water if it begins to dry out.
