Are you dreaming of Christmas dinner yet? I don't know about you, but I do like to go all out at Christmas, and we usually have about 8 different veg dishes. This is one of my favourite sides, in fact I could quite happily eat it all by itself anytime of year. I've chosen to use organic veggies due to the fact there are fewer pesticides used and they are better for us. @organicuk
For the squash:
- 1 organic Crown Prince Squash
- 1.5 teaspoon of dried oregano
- 1.5 teaspoon of fennel seeds
- 2 teaspoons of coriander seeds
- 4 tablespoons of olive oil
For the dressing:
- 1 bunch of coriander
- 1 tablespoon of capers
- 1 tablespoon of grainy mustard
- 1 lemon
- 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
Cut the squash in to wedges and place in a large baking tray. Put the spices in a pestle and mortar, and grind to a powder. Add the olive oil and mix, pour over the squash and use your hands to make sure each piece is covered with the marinade. Bake in the oven at 200 degrees C for approximately an hour, checking every so often, until they are slightly charred around the edges. Whilst they are cooking make the dressing - finely chop the coriander, and place in a bowl, along with the capers, mustard, juice of the lemon and the extra virgin olive oil. Mix together. Once the squash is cooked, place in a serving dish and pour over the dressing.
Incidentally I use this dressing on absolutely everything, it is so easy and one of my faves, and tastes especially good on fish!
