  • Serves:4


    1kg queen squash, deseeded and cut into 8 large wedges
    3½ tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    50g walnut halves
    5 sun-dried tomato halves in oil, drained and chopped
    1 garlic clove, crushed
    2 sprigs rosemary, leaves picked and finely chopped
    2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

    1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C, gas mark 6. Arrange the squash wedges in a single layer in a large roasting tin, skin-side down. Brush with 1½ tbsp extra virgin olive oil; season. Roast for 45 minutes, until tender and golden. Meanwhile, spread the walnuts out on a baking tray and toast for 8-10 minutes, until golden. Allow to cool then roughly chop.

    2. For the dressing, mix the chopped walnuts in a bowl with the sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, rosemary, balsamic vinegar and remaining 2 tbsp oil; season. Put 2 roasted squash wedges and a handful of salad leaves on each serving plate, then spoon over the dressing generously. For a more substantial meal, add some brown rice, quinoa or toasted sourdough, if liked.
