Caramelized Butternut Squash with Whipped Feta and Zhoug

Serves: 4

Created by MasterChef finalist Emma Spitzer, this is sweet, salty and spicy all on one plate; this dish is a great hit of powerful flavours that all mesh really well together. Zhoug is a fiery Middle Eastern relish that works as a condiment for all manner of dishes, so store any leftover sauce in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks. We made the zhoug using the Dualit 700W Hand Blender.

Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/Gas Mark 6.
  2. Place the butternut squash in a bowl and toss with the melted butter, sugar, cinnamon and 1/2 of the salt. Spread out on a baking tray and roast for 30 minutes or until cooked through and the sugar is starting to caramelize.
  3. While the squash is roasting, add the pistachios to a separate baking tray and roast for 8 minutes or until they begin to brown and smell nutty. Remove from the oven and leave to cool, then chop roughly with a knife.
  4. For the zhoug, place the coriander, parsley, chilli, chilli flakes, cumin and rapeseedoil into a large bowl. Using the Dualit 700W Hand Blender, pulse until a loose green sauce is formed.
  5. Stir in the lemon juice.
  6. Once cooked, transfer the butternut squash to a serving dish and dot over tablespoonfuls of the whipped feta before drizzling over the spicy zhoug and scattering with the chopped nuts.

Tips...

  • To make this recipe vegan, simply omit the feta cheese, and replace the butter with a vegan alternative.
