FLEXI FEASTS

Roasted mixed squash with almond and tarragon salsa

55 MINUTES | SERVES 6-8 EASY | LC GF

This recipe was the vegetarian and vegan main course option at my Home Bird supper club. The mix of earthy, sweet, fresh and tangy flavours with multiple textures makes it a real winner.

squashes 8 small, mixed, chopped into
5cm-thick wedges (no need to peel or remove seeds)
olive oil 8 tbsp
balsamic vinegar 2 tbsp
flaked almonds 80g
flat-leaf parsley1/2 a small bunch
tarragon a small bunch
maple syrup 2 tbsp
nigella seeds 2 tbsp (optional)

• Heat the oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Put the squash onto two large baking sheets. Drizzle over half the olive oil and all the balsamic, and season, then toss well to coat. Roast on the top shelf of the oven for 50 minutes, turning halfway through.

• Meanwhile, toast the almonds in a large frying pan over a medium heat for 3-4 minutes, tossing regularly, until golden. Transfer to a bowl and leave to cool. Roughly chop the parsley (and stalks) and tarragon (removing the stalk bases).

• Make the salsa by mixing together the almonds, herbs, remaining olive oil and a pinch of seasoning.

• Once the squash flesh is tender and sticky, transfer to a large dish, drizzle the maple syrup over, then pile on the salsa and finish with a sprinkling of nigella seeds, if you like.
