Ingredients
  • 150g fresh ripe blackberries
  • 1 small shallot, finely chopped
  • 2tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1tsp caster sugar
  • 1tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 butternut squash (about 800g prepared), cut into chunks
  • 2½tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 150g Grower's Selection British Unwashed Sliced Curly Kale, washed
  • 50g pecans
  • 100g Asda Goat's Cheese
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 200C/ 180C Fan/Gas 6.

  • Put the blackberries in a small bowl and lightly crush with the back of a fork. Add the shallot, white wine vinegar, caster sugar and thyme leaves. Stir together and set aside to pickle for at least 30 mins.

  • Meanwhile, put the butternut squash on a baking tray, drizzle over 2tbsp of the rapeseed oil and toss to coat. Roast for 25 mins, turning halfway through. Scatter the kale over the top and cook for another 7 mins.

  • While the butternut squash is roasting, scatter the pecans on another baking tray and cook in the oven for 5 mins. Allow to cool then break into pieces.

  • To make the dressing, remove the blackberries from the vinegar mixture and set aside. Whisk the liquid together with the remaining rapeseed oil.

  • To serve, layer the squash and kale on a serving dish and crumble over the goat’s cheese. Top with the pickled blackberries and pecans, drizzle with the dressing and season with pepper.
