1x Butternut Squash (or 2 medium sweet potatoes)
1x Onion
1x Red Pepper
1x tin of chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
2x handfuls of kale (or spinach)
1 teaspoon Curry Powder (or Garam Masala is also amazing)

Chop, peel and prep your vegetables and preheat your oven at 180 degrees

In a large mixing bowl, add your chopped vegetables (not the kale) along with your chickpeas, curry powder and cumin and a splash of olive oil – coat your vegetables with the spices.

Once coated, pour onto a baking tray and into the oven for 30 minutes

Whilst cooking, in a blender, food processor or bowl, add your garlic, tahini, turmeric, black pepper and Ceylon cinnamon with your water and blitz to create a creamy & sauce

After 30 minutes, add your kale to the vegetable tray in the oven for a further 5 minutes

Once cooked, serve in pasta bowls and sprinkle with cranberries and pumpkin seeds

Pour over your tahini sauce & enjoy

Alternative dressing…
