  • 1 medium butternut squash
  • 1 cup cooked chickpeas
  • A handful of wild rocket
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds
  • 3.5 oz feta cheese, crumbled
  • A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
  • A drizzle of balsamic vinegar
  • A pinch of sea salt
  • A pinch of black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). 
  • Cut the squash in half and scoop out the seeds, then cut into cubes. Toss the butternut squash with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt, smoked paprika, and add a pinch of black pepper. 
  • Place the squash on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. After 10 minutes add the chickpeas. Roast until tender for 20-25 minutes.
