Sausage, Butternut Squash and Lentil Casserole

A seasonal winter warming recipe to use up some of our seasonal veg. We gathered together shallots, leek, garlic and butternut squash from our allotment. Then inspired by this online recipe for Sausage Casserole we added our own style and created this…


6 Sausages
1 Leek
4 Shallots
2 Cloves of garlic
1 Butternut Squash
300ml Chicken stock
100ml White wine
4 tbsp Apple sauce
2 tsp Dried or fresh rosemary
400g Chopped tomatoes
6tbsp Red Lentils
2tsp Sugar
Salt & pepper


1. Fry the sausages in butter until browned then remove from pan
2. Fry the chopped shallots, chopped garlic and leek for 5 mins then add cubed butternut squash for 10mins
3. Add the white wine, apple sauce and rosemary
4. Add the chopped tomatoes and chicken stock
5. Season with salt and pepper and add sugar if required
6. Place everything in an oven proof casserole dish and cover.
7. Cook for 45mins at 180-200
8. Add the lentils and cook for a further 15 mins

Serves 2
