  • ½ onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika, plus a little extra
  • 1 small sweet potato, peeled and diced

  1. Heat the oil in a large pan, add the onion and cook slowly until soft and golden. Tip in the paprika and cook for a further 2 mins, then add the sweet potato, lentils, thyme and stock. Bring to a simmer, then cook for 20 mins or until the potato and lentils are tender.
