    Purple sprouting broccoli and squash salad with chilli butter

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 45 minutes
    • Total time: 1 hour

    Serves: 6 as a side

    Ingredients

    1 butternut squash, peeled, halved and deseeded
    2 tbsp olive oil
    70g unsalted butter
    230g pack purple sprouting broccoli, thick stems halved lengthways
    2 tsp chilli flakes
    10g flat leaf parsley leaves, roughly chopped
    1 lemon, halved
    30g roasted salted almonds, roughly chopped, to serve

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C, gas mark 6. Cut the squash into 1cm-thick slices, put in a roasting tin and toss with the olive oil; season. Cut ¹⁄ ³ of the butter into cubes and scatter over. Cover tightly with foil and roast for 30 minutes, then remove the foil and roast for another 10-15 minutes until golden.

    2. When the squash is almost done, cook the broccoli in boiling salted water for 4-5 minutes, until just tender. Drain thoroughly; set to one side. Melt the remaining butter in a pan over a low heat. Stir in the chilli and parsley; season. Transfer to a bowl and add the lemon halves to the pan, flesh-side down. Turn up the heat and fry briefly until slightly charred.

    3. Arrange the vegetables on a plate, scattered with the almonds and the spiced butter drizzled over. Serve with the charred lemon halves alongside for squeezing.
