Recipe: Roast pumpkin, golden beets and squash

Vegetable-salad-436

This warm salad is seriously nourishing, and the silky squash, earthy beets and potent garlic combine to make a flavoursome dish that you will love. It's super easy and looks colourful. It's great with hummus and greens for lunch or for dinner as a side to something more substantial.

Method:

✦ Heat the oven to 180°C/gas 4.

✦ Slice the butternut squash into four long slices and place on a big baking tray with the golden beet wedges. Cut the pumpkin halves into lovely crescent moon wedges – roughly 4 wedges per half pumpkin – and add to the tray too, with the garlic cloves.

✦ Drizzle olive oil generously over everything, sprinkle with sea salt and pepper and roast in the oven for about 30–35 minutes.

✦ Keep an eye on them; you want the edges to start browning and the veg to be tender all through – check by inserting a small sharp knife into a thick piece.

✦ Remove the veg from the oven and allow to cool a little. Transfer everything to a shallow platter and serve.
