Lentils make such a great base for soup, as they are full of plant-based protein and general goodness. And, once you have added some roasted squash goodness, it elevates this soup into a creamy, sweet and earthy being. Delicious for squash season or any time of the year.

Ingredients
  • 1 pack of The Spice Tailor Classic Lentil Tarka Daal
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil plus a little extra for roasting
  • 300g butternut squash pieces
  • 350ml vegetable stock

Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (Fan 180°C/Gas Mark 6).
  2. Toss the squash pieces in a little oil and bake until soft.
  3. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan. Add the spices from the whole spice sachet and fry until aromatic and darkening, adding the chilli for optional extra heat.
  4. Add the Tarka sauce and the lentils from the pouches, stock and bring to a boil. Simmer for 2 minutes and add the cooked squash.
  5. Take off the heat, remove the dried chilli and blend until smooth. Add more liquid if it is too thick or cook away extra if it is too thin, simmering for a few minutes, either way.

MADE WITH OUR DELICIOUS
Classic Lentil Tarka Daal

‘Tarka daal’ is a staple across most Indian homes and is the most popular lentil curry in North India. The word ‘tarka’ refers to the cooking of spices and flavours, which are added to the cooked lentils. Our Classic Lentil Tarka Daal has a buttery smoothness that is elevated with the addition of caramelised onions, rich tangy tomatoes, zingy ginger, garlic and carefully selected Indian spices.

This daal is perfect for a fuss-free, 5-minute meal with rice or naans, but is also really versatile and makes the base for a range of delicious healthy dishes for the more adventurous cook. Taking inspiration from our recipe pages, you can transform it into comforting soups, crispy lentil cakes kedgeree and much more. It’s a fantastic meal to keep on hand in your cupboard for busy days. Perfect for vegetarians or meat-free days.
