This is the recipe that evolved from my grower's box disaster:


1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into large chunks

1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into chunks.

2 large red onions peeled and quartered

1 large bag of frozen broadbeans

500grams of dried red lentils

4 fresh carrots cut into chunks (wash, don't peel)

1 large pointed red pepper, seeded and cut into chunks

Cover with boiling water and season to taste

(for me this is always a couple of bay leaves, garlic and ground pepper)

This time I had a small chunk of leftover ham, but it isn't necessary. If there is no meat, I add a bit of oil for flavour.



Cook in crockpot for 2 hours on high. After a couple of hours, scooped up the big pieces and 'chunkify' them with the food processor, then add back in to cook for another hour.


Great hot but also good cold, like gaspacho.
