Drizzle olive oil, to sauté
1 onion, peeled and sliced
3 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
15g fresh ginger, finely grated
½ tsp cumin seeds
½ tsp Robertsons Ground Cumin
1 tsp Robertsons Ground Coriander (+ 1 tsp extra, to sprinkle)
1 tbsp smoked paprika
500g pumpkin, diced
750ml (3 cups) water
1 Knorr Tomato Base Dry Cook-In Sauce
3 x 400g tins lentils, drained handful fresh coriander, to garnish
1 large store-bought garlic bread, to serve
Edible flowers, to garnish (optional)

Preparation method

In a large saucepan, heat a drizzle of olive oil then sauté the onion, garlic, ginger and cumin seeds over medium heat until the onion is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the Robertsons ground cumin, Robertsons ground coriander, smoked paprika and pumpkin. Using a wooden spoon, mix until the pumpkin cubes are coated in the spices. Add the water.
Stir in the Knorr Tomato Base Dry Cook-in-Sauce, then bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat. Continue to simmer until the pumpkin is cooked, about 20 minutes.
Add the drained lentils and stir until heated through. Sprinkle with the extra 1 tsp Robertsons ground coriander, then leave to cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and garnish with a handful of fresh coriander and, if desired, edible flowers. Enjoy with the store bought garlic bread alongside.
