    Autumn salad

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 30 minutes
    • Total time: 50 minutes

    Serves: 3


    350g butternut squash, cut into 0.5cm slices
    2 raw beetroot, peeled and cut into 0.5cm rounds
    2 tbsp olive oil
    ½ tsp ground paprika
    1 tbsp cider vinegar
    1 tsp maple syrup
    Pinch ground allspice
    250g pack ready-cooked quinoa
    3 tbsp (45g) toasted flaked almonds
    Large handful wild rocket
    1 essential British Apple


    1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C, gas mark 6. Line a baking tray with baking parchment; arrange the squash on one side, with the beetroot on the other. Sprinkle each with ¼ tbsp oil and season, then scatter the paprika over the squash; roast for 25 minutes, turning the vegetables halfway through.

    2. Mix the remaining 1½ tbsp oil with the vinegar, maple syrup and allspice; season. Prepare the quinoa according to pack instructions, then place in a bowl and toss through ½ the dressing and 2 tbsp almonds. Toss through the rocket leaves, then spoon onto a large serving plate.

    3. Arrange the roasted squash and the beetroot over the quinoa. Halve, core and finely slice the apple just before serving, then scatter over the salad. Spoon over the remaining dressing and scatter with the remaining almonds to finish. Serve immediately.
