    Hasselback spiced squash with coconut flatbreads & toasted seeds

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 25 minutes
    • Cooking time: 1 hours

    Serves: 4


    2 small butternut squash
    2 tbsp coconut oil
    1¼ tbsp Cooks’ Ingredients Smokey Steak Rub
    10g pack fresh bay leaves
    350g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
    1 tsp sea salt flakes
    350g Greek yogurt
    ½ x 28g pack coriander, leaves and stems separated and finely chopped
    2 tsp Cooks’ Homebaking Coconut Natural Flavour
    50g mixed seeds 


    1 Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6. Halve the squash lengthways, then peel and remove the seeds using a spoon. Place one half of squash cut-side down on a board. Lay some chopsticks either side as a guide, then cut down using a sharp knife at 2mm intervals, stopping when you reach the chopsticks
    so as not to cut all the way through. Repeat with all the halves.

    2 Place on a baking sheet, rub over the coconut oil and scatter with 1 tbsp of the rub. Push the bay leaves in and around the squash. Roast for 1 hour until caramelised and soft.

    3 Meanwhile, make the flatbreads. Place the flour and salt in a large bowl, stir in the yogurt, coriander stems and the coconut flavouring. Bring together with a fork then knead gently with your hands on a lightly floured surface until the dough comes together.

    4 Divide into 8 balls and roll each one out to 2mm thick using a rolling pin. Warm a non-stick frying pan over a high heat and cook each flatbread without oil for 1 minute on each side, followed by a further 30 seconds on each side, until puffed and golden. Set aside in a clean tea towel to keep warm while you cook the rest.

    5 Toss the seeds in the remaining rub, scatter over a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 5-7 minutes until golden. Serve the butternut drizzled with any cooking juices, sprinkled with the coriander leaves and toasted seeds and with the flat breads alongside. Delicious with a green salad with bitter leaves.
