This recipe is a slight variation on Harlequin squash mash with Puy lentils, made with red lentils and served with sausages and some oven-dried tomatoes as a relish.

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

  1. Halve the squash, scoop out and discard the seeds
  2. Cut the squash into 6 pieces cutting from the top, down - as you would segment an orange. *See Chef's notes.
  3. Place in a pan and cover in boiling water.
  4. Add the rinsed red lentils and the bullion and Boil, covered for about 12 minutes or until the squash is soft.
  5. Carefully remove the squash pieces, and allow to cool a little then scoop the squash flesh from the skin and add to a bowl, season with pepper, add the butter or oil and mash with a fork.
  6. Drain the lentils and mix in with the squash mash. The red lentils do tend to beak p but they still add another flavour element to this dish.
  7. Meanwhile grill the sausages for 10 to 15 minutes, turning now and then.

Serving suggestions

Arrange the sausages and squash mash on a plate and serve with a small portion of oven dried tomatoes as relish.

Chef's notes

Since this recipe was made, I now think the best way to prepare small to medium sized summer squash is just to halve, scoop out the seeds, (as pictured) and then boil the two halves for 12 minutes. Test with a fork and then scoop out the flesh.
