Heat a saucepan over medium heat. Add the olive oil, onion and garlic. Cook until the onion starts to soften, approx. 5 minutes.
Add the stock, pumpkin (squash), tomatoes and the lentils and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, or until pumpkin (squash) is tender, stirring occasionally. Add the broccoli and simmer for an additional 5 minutes. You may choose to blitz soup with a hand blender until smooth or leave chunky.
Serve half over two bowls, season and top with parsley and parmesan. Refrigerate the remainder in an air-tight container.
Leftover Tip: The leftover portion can be saved in the fridge for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months. When you are ready to eat, defrost and reheat the remaining portion, season and serve with parsley and parmesan to garnish.
