Roasted Chicory, Red Onions & Squash

A warming, earthy, autumn dish that is blend of bitterness from the chicory and sweetness from the onion and squash. The dressing is really what brings the flavour together.

Ingredients How to make


  • 140 g Chicory, sliced in half
  • 120 g Red onion, peeled and cut into quarters
  • 200 g Butternut Squash, peeled, and sliced into about 1cm thick slices
  • 50 ml Water
  • 1 sprig Fresh Thyme
  • 1 sprig Fresh Rosemary
  • 1 tbsp Mixed herbs
  • 15 g Garlic, whole cloves with skin on

Dressing for serving

  • 25 ml Cold pressed olive oil
  • ½ Juice of lemon
  • 25 g Crushed walnuts
  • 25 g Pumpkin seeds
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How to make

  • Place the chicory, onion, butternut squash, herbs, and garlic in a baking tray with
    the water and mix them together.
  • Cover with parchment paper or foil and place in the oven at 180C for 20 minutes.
  • Then remove the foil and turn the oven temperature up to 250C and cook for a
    further 10 minutes. Check that the squash is soft and cooked.
  • Remove from the oven and put to one side whilst you make the dressing.
  • Place the olive oil and lemon juice in a bowl with salt and pepper.
  • The garlic that you cooked with the chicory should be quite soft, so squeeze out the flesh into the bowl of lemon juice and oil and discard the skin.
  • Stir well.
  • When you are ready to serve, place the roasted chicory mixture into a serving dish,drizzle with the dressing and sprinkle with nuts and seeds.
  • You can even add some crumbled feta to add a different dimension.
