  • olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped 
  • 1 carrot, peeled and grated 
  • 100g button or chestnut mushrooms,  finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed 
  • 1 tbsp  balsamic vinegar
  • finely chopped to make 1 tbsp  rosemary needles
  • 400g tin  chopped tomatoes
  • 250g pouch cooked puy lentils
  • 2 large or 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled


  • STEP 1

    Heat 1 tsp oil in a pan on a low heat and fry the onion and carrot with a pinch of salt for 10 minutes until soft, but not golden. Turn the heat up a little, add the mushrooms and fry for 5 minutes until they start to turn golden, then add the garlic, balsamic and rosemary and simmer until most of the balsamic has evaporated.

  • STEP 2

    Tip in the tomatoes, and simmer for 10 minutes, then add the lentils. Season and simmer for 5-10 minutes, until thickened.

  • STEP 3

    Meanwhile, peel the sweet potatoes into long thin strips with a veg peeler or spiralizer, layer them on top of each other, then cut the ribbons into 3mm wide lengths, or use the flatter setting of a spiralizer, to make sweet potato noodles.

  • STEP 4

    Heat 1 tsp oil in a pan and fry the sweet potato noodles for 3-5 minutes until tender and it has turned a lighter shade of orange. Season, then tip into bowls and top with the vegan ragù.
