Sausage, Lentil and Sweet Potato Bake

Sorry guys, quiet blog week...I've been having an induction week at uni so it's been pretty hectic. I'm finally getting round to studying my English degree-just four years behind schedule after having Wonderboy! As you can imagine that will be taking up a lot of my time from now on, but you'll be pleased to hear I am going to try and keep Miss P's Kitchen in business-there seems to be going back now, as I can't seem cook a plate of food without the compulsion to take a photo of it! Mind you, if this week is anything to go by, not a lot of eating has actually taken place. So tonight called for a much-needed comfort meal.

Makes 2 portions.

Heat 1tbsp olive oil in a frying pan, then fry some sausges until browned on the outside. I used chipolatas, in which case use 3 or 4 per person. Remove from pan and keep to one side.

In the same pan, on a low heat, add 1 finely chopped onion, 1 crushed garlic clove, a generous pinch of dried chilli flakes and a small pinch of paprika. Cook for 5 minutes or so until softened.

Add 100g dried red lentils that have been rinsed in cold water. Add 1 large sweet potato (or 2 small ones) peeled and cut into chunks.

Tip in 1 tin of chopped tomatoes. Season. Add the sausages back to the pan and mix all together.

Now move this all to a bakng dish, top with some grated mature cheddar and bake in an oven pre-heated to 200°C for approimately 25 minutes until golden brown and crispy.

Serve with green vegetables.
