Roasted Butternut Squash and Grain Salad

Roasted Butternut Squash and Grain Salad

This salad is great to rustle up with odd bits you may have lying around in your fridge and cupboards. Grains and roasted vegetables are a great way to bulk out your salads, and of course we've finished this with a good drizzle of Lucy's.


Lucy's Classic Balsamic Dressing

1 small butternut squash, halved, deseeded and cut into 2cm wedges

2 red onions, each cut into 8 wedges

3 tbsp olive oil

250g Merchant Gourmet puy lentils

100g rocket

125g goats cheese or any soft cheese 


1. Preheat the oven to 220c

2. Place the butternut and onions onto a large baking tray and drizzle over the olive oil, mix well and roast for 30-40 minutes until golden.

3. Place the lentils into a medium sauce pan and pour over the dressing. Warm the lentils for 2-3 minutes adding a splash of water if necessary.

4. Place the warm lentils on a large serving dish and stir through the squash and onion, before seasoning with salt and pepper. Top with the rocket and crumble over the goats cheese.
