Butternut pumpkin and feta salad
- 1 medium butternut pumpkin, deseeded and cut into 1cm cubes (with skin on)
- 3 garlic cloves
- 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
- ¼ teaspoon dried chilli flakes
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- small bunch of fresh sage, finely chopped, or 1 teaspoon dried sage
- 200g feta
1 Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Put the cubes of pumpkin in a roasting tin. Keeping the garlic cloves whole and unpeeled, bash them with the palm of your hand or the back of a wooden spoon – anything that will partially crush them. Add them to the roasting tin with the pumpkin, then sprinkle over the cumin seeds and chilli flakes.
2 Drizzle the olive oil over, season with black pepper and add the dried sage if you’re using it. Roast in the oven for around 20 min or until the squash is soft, starting to brown and the edges are starting to caramelise. If you’re using fresh sage, sprinkle it over now. Put the pumpkin in a large bowl and crumble the feta over it, then season with a little black pepper. Serve immediately.
