Method

  • Dice the butternut squash – leaving the skin on. Place the diced squash on a roasting tray and roast at around 200 for 20 – 25 minutes until golden and soft.
  • Place the lentils into a sauce pan and place on to a hob and warm through. You want to remove from the heat before they start to sizzle.
  • Mix the lentils and roasted squash together whilst everything is still warm.
  • Chop the parsley and add that to the squash and lentils, along with the clementine juice, salt, and black pepper, and toss well.
  • Plate up, and then crumble the feta over the top.
