  • 2 carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 butternut squash, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 2 x 400g tins lentils, drained and rinsed
  • a large handful coriander


1.    Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas Mark 6. Place the vegetables onto a large baking tray and drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle over the rase el hanout, chilli flakes and season. Toss to fully combine. Roast in the oven for 25 minutes.

2.    Remove from the oven and add the lentils, stirring to combine. Place back in the oven for a further 5 minutes, until the lentils are heated through.

3.    Meanwhile, bring a medium saucepan of water to the boil and add the eggs. Simmer for 7 minutes until just set. Peel the eggs and slice in half.

4.    Divide the roast vegetables and lentils between 4 shallow boils and top with the halved eggs. Garnish with coriander before serving.

Cooks tips

You can also use sweet potatoes or peppers instead of butternut squash and stir through spinach at the end along with the lentils for extra protein.
