Curried Squash & Lentil Egg Bake

I love making this, aside from the fact it’s a one dish wonder which makes my life that much easier, it’s packed full of flavour and a nice mix of sweetness thanks to the squash and dried fruit. If you’re a fan of curry and eggs this is a nice and simple dish to add to your repertoire!

I will be Bloom Festival with Bord Bia on Friday 2nd June cooking this delicious, nutritious and versatile egg recipe with the O’Donovan brothers. Come to the Quality Kitchen Stage at 11.45am to catch the demo!
