  • 800g butternut squash, cubed
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 250g sourdough bread, cut into large cubes
  • 3 tbsp nonpareille capers, rinsed and drained
  • 200g podded baby broad beans
  • 200g podded peas
  • 5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 3 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 x 25g packs basil, leaves shredded


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Toss the butternut squash with 2 tbsp olive oil. Season and roast for 35-40 minutes, stirring halfway, until soft and well-coloured. Set aside to cool.

  2. Reduce the oven temperature to 180°C, gas mark 4. Toss the sourdough cubes with the capers and the remaining 2 tbsp olive oil. Season and roast for about 15 minutes, turning at least once, until golden.

  3. Meanwhile, blanch the broad beans and peas in plenty of boiling, salted water for 3-4 minutes. Tip into a colander and refresh under cool water; drain well. Slip any larger broad beans out of their skins and set aside with the peas. Mix the extra virgin olive oil, garlic and vinegar to make a dressing; season and set aside.

  4. At least 30 minutes (or up to 4 hours) before eating, combine the roast squash, toasted bread and dressing in a large bowl, making sure the bread is thoroughly coated. Toss the broad beans, peas and shredded basil through 10 minutes before serving.
