Butternut Squash & Cauliflower Lentil Korma

This is a very cost-effective and colourful vegan tray bake, combining sweet but not too starchy butternut squash and cauliflower with lentils and spices. This is a mild plant-based curry that will tempt reluctant vegans!

Sheet Pan Dinners

2 red onions, cut into quarters

400 g/14 oz. butternut squash, peeled, deseeded and cut into 1-cm/½-in. cubes

½ cauliflower, cut into florets

2 teaspoons olive oil

60 g/¼ cup korma curry paste

200 ml/generous ¾ cup coconut milk

1 x 400-g/14-oz. can green lentils, drained and rinsed

1 lemon, cut into quarters, to serve

1 tablespoon freshly chopped coriander, to serve



Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F) Gas 6.

Put the onions, butternut squash and cauliflower in a sheet pan with sides and drizzle over the olive oil. 

Bake in the preheated oven for 30–35 minutes until all the vegetables are soft and the cauliflower is also brown and crispy at the edges. 

Meanwhile, mix the curry paste and coconut milk together. Pour the mixture over the vegetables and stir in the lentils. 

Bake for a further 10 minutes. Squeeze over the lemon quarters, sprinkle over the coriander and serve.

Serve with rice.
