  • Preheat oven to 200°C and line a flat roasting tray with parchment and drizzle some oil.
  • Place pumpkin and sausages on the tray. Scatter rosemary and chilli over the pumpkin and sausages, then drizzle oil. Season with salt and roast for 30 minutes until golden.

  • Add the lentils and stir for 1 minute until combined.
  • Add the red wine to deglaze.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes, chicken stock and honey. Bring up to a gentle simmer and season to taste. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  • While the stew is simmering, cook couscous as per packet instructions. Mix in some fresh basil.
  • Stir through the kale leaves to the stew and finally add cooked pumpkin and sausages.
  • Serve and devour while hot!
