You are getting so much goodness in this dish, the high iron and protein from the green lentils combined with the vitamins and minerals from the potato and tomato.

Spinach is similarly high in Vitamin A to Sweet Potato.

Squash is a very good vegetable and very good for us. It’s colourful, high in carbs and fibre but very low in fat.
