This has got to be one of my favourite creations in the past couple of years. If you can’t find pomegranate molasses, try paste. It’s usually the same. Enjoy!

Time: 45 minutes

Serves: 4


1kg peeled and seeded butternut squash – cubes to 2cm
30ml avocado oil (or other cold-pressed, neutral-flavoured oil)
5g salt
1g black pepper
50g raw pumpkin seeds
200ml plain Greek yogurt
10g fresh basil leaves – chiffonade
20ml pomegranate molasses


Preheat your oven to 220C.

Toss the squash cubes with the oil a salt to coat evenly. Spread on a sheet pan and place in the oven for thirty minutes, turning a time or two.

Bake the pumpkin seeds on a separate pan for the last five minutes of the squash’s cooking time.

Spread the yogurt across the bottom of the serving vessel. Add the squash. Top with the pumpkin seeds and basil, then drizzle with the pomegranate syrup.
