Squash / Pumpkin, Shallot And Sage Roast

Quick and simple - a delicious way of cooking autumn shallots and squash or pumpkin.
 
 

Ingredients

Serves 4 as an accompaniment

  • 1 medium squash or ½ pumpkin
  • 10-12 small / medium shallots
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • handful fresh sage leaves
 

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 C.

  2. Peel the squash / pumpkin with a potato peeler. Chop in half. Scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Then chop the flesh into bite-sized chunks.

  3. Peel the shallots and cut off the stalks and roots.

  4. Put the oil in an oven-proof dish and add the shallots and squash. Stir with a spoon to coat all the ingredients with the oil.

  5. Roast for 30 minutes, until the squash or pumpkin is tender.

  6. Roughly chop the sage and mix with the roasted vegetables just before serving.
 

Time From Cupboard-To-Table

About 45 minutes.

Shallot Recipes

Denise Tolson's Bramley, Cox and Celeriac Dish
This recipe was provided to us by Denise Tolson (of Jerusalem Artichoke fame!). She got it from her mum. We love it because it uses not one but TWO types of apple, and unlike our other celeriac and apple recipe, this one is really quite luxurious. Enjoy!

Thanks to The Bramley Apple Information Service for the photo.

Chard and Veggie Bake with a Mushroom, Quinoa and Goats Cheese Crumble Topping
We've been so blessed with recipe submissions from our readers, and from enthusiastic veg box providers around the country that it's been a while since we've invented a new one of our own.

Last week we received a box that contained carrots, chard, mushrooms, shallots and turnips. We already had a can of mixed beans in the cupboard, garlic cloves, some unfinished goats cheese in the fridge and a big box of quinoa.

This was the result!

Squashes keep well throughout the winter and, although the recipe suggests butternut, any orange-fleshed squash will do. The coconut is deliciously sweet with the squash.
