½ golden butternut squash (roughly 500g), peeled and cut into 1cm pieces
4 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
1 small red onion, roughly chopped
¼ tsp chilli flakes
1 tbsp rapeseed oil
8 sage leaves, finely chopped
30g sunfower seeds
100g feta cheese, crumbled
4 tbsp crème fraîche
500g puff pastry block
1 egg, beaten
1 Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6. Put the butternut squash, garlic and onion in a bowl with ½ the chilli fakes and season. Add the oil and mix well until everything is well coated. Transfer to a baking tray and roast for 30 minutes.
2 Once the squash is soft and cooked, transfer to a bowl and allow to cool. Once cool, add the sage, sunfower seeds, feta and remaining chilli fakes. Fold the crème fraîche through the mixture and season.
3 On a foured work surface, roll out the pastry block into a large rectangle, roughly 1cm thick, and cut it into 8 rectangles. Divide the squash flling between the 8 pieces of pastry along one side of the rectangle, leaving a 1cm border. Brush each border with a little egg, fold the pastry over and press with a fork to seal. Cut a couple of slits in the top of each puff and put them on a parchment-lined baking tray. Brush all over with the egg. Bake the puffs for 30-35 minutes, until crisp and golden. Serve them warm with a spicy chutney, such as tomato.
