SERVES 2, or 4 as part of a meal INGREDIENTS 1 × 200g pack of feta cheese 1 unwaxed lemon 1 teaspoon coriander seeds, bashed in a pestle and mortar sea salt and freshly ground black pepper olive oil 800g tomatoes, different colours, sizes and shapes a small bunch of fresh mint, leaves picked and finely chopped METHOD Preheat the oven to 220°C/fan 200°C/gas 7.Place the feta on a baking tray lined with baking paper.Just rinse the seeds under the cold tap and soak them in salted water for a couple of hours – the orange fbres of the squash that cling to them will then peel away easily.Roast them at 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6 for 15 minutes with a little salt and oil – adding soy sauce and spices works too. SERVES 4 INGREDIENTS For the salad: 6 medium beetroots, peeled and quartered 2 tablespoons sherry or red wine vinegar sea salt and freshly ground black pepper olive oil 2 red onions, peeled and cut into eighths 6 smallish carrots, peeled and halved lengthways ½ a butternut squash, deseeded and cut into 1cm slices (see note on squash above) a few sprigs of fresh sage or thyme, leaves picked 5 slices of good seeded bread a handful of roasted pumpkin or roasted squash seeds 1 unwaxed lemon For the dressing: 2 tablespoons good extra virgin olive oil a small bunch of fresh mint, leaves picked and roughly chopped 1 tablespoon wholegrain mustard METHOD Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6.Autumn roasted root panzanella Panzanella by its tomatoey nature is something I only really enjoy in late summer, when the tomatoes are at their ripest and best. Here, gently roasted squash hugs the seeded bread, onions add background sweetness, and the beetroots are roasted with a brave amount of vinegar, hich becomes a deep amethyst liquor that is the base of the killer dressing.Good bread soaking up all the precious juices of the best tomatoes. In this recipe the oven does all the work for you (you’ll need a few roasting trays).
I like to serve it just out of the oven so it’s milky soft.I like to make the most of the variety of different coloured and shaped tomatoes we have access to in the UK.I can’t think of a more beautiful plate than a mixture of bright yellow, vibrant orange and faming red tomatoes, carefully sliced, with a drizzle of decent olive oil and a scattering of sea salt.So there is a place for the odd too-good-to-pass-up chewy salted-caramel brownie alongside a clean bowl of grains and greens.Too much healthy food leaves me miserably hungry, but equally I don’t like to rely on a lot of heavy carbs or dairy to fill the gaps.
Today, almost everyone you meet, of any age, is becoming super-conscious of what they eat and the effect it has on their health.
