FULL of fes­tive flavours. Serves: 1.


25g dried cran­ber­ries 1 tbsp red wine 125g cooked Puy lentils 2 tsp olive oil ½ onion, finely chopped ½ garlic clove, crushed or finely grated 1 tbsp chopped sage ½ tbsp chopped pars­ley ¼ tsp smoked pa­prika Pinch ground cloves 1 tsp tomato puree 1 tsp soy sauce 1 tsp corn­flour


1 Heat oven to 200c/180c fan/gas 6. Oil and line base of a 200ml oven­proof ramekin with a cir­cle of bak­ing parch­ment. Put cran­ber­ries in a small pan with wine and cook for a cou­ple of min­utes over a medium heat un­til cran­ber­ries are plump and wine is syrupy. Pour into ramekin and set aside.

2 Put lentils in a bowl and roughly mash half of them with a fork. Heat oil in a small pan and cook onion for six to eight min­utes over a medium heat un­til soft­ened. Stir in garlic, herbs, pa­prika and cloves and cook for another minute. Turn off heat and add lentils, tomato puree, soy sauce and corn­flour. Stir ev­ery­thing well, then spoon into ramekin, press­ing down gen­tly with back of a spoon. At this stage it can be chilled for two days, or freeze for up to two months, with the ramekin cov­ered. De­frost in the fridge be­fore cook­ing.

3 Put ramekin on bak­ing tray and bake for 15 min­utes. Leave to cool for one minute. Serve on a plate with sea­sonal veg­eta­bles.
