Author: Louise-Claire Cayzer


  • Half a squash (medium sized) Cut into slices
  • Small handful of hazelnuts , toasted
  • 1 tin butterbeans , rinsed and drained
  • 2 cloves garlic , chopped finely
  • 4 -5 sprigs fresh thyme
  • Mild chilli powder
  • half teaspoon of marigold stock powder
  • splash of white wine (optional)
  • bunch of spinach or other greens (I used beetroot tops from the garden), rinsed and chopped roughly
  • 1 small chilli , chopped and deseeded
  • Juice half a lemon
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper


  • Put the squash slices on an oven tray, slick with a little olive oil, sprinkle over the thyme leaves & mild chilli powder & add a little salt & peppper.
  • Bake on medium heat (gas mark 7/ 220C) for 20 mins, turning half way. You want the squash to be soft & a little coloured, so leave in a little longer if need be.
  • Meanwhile, in a large frying pan, sautee the garlic & chilli with a little olive oil, then add the butterbeans & stir to coat with oil.
  • Add in the greens, white wine (if using), lemon juice and stock powder.
  • Stir until the greens are wilted.
  • Taste and add a little salt & pepper if needed.
  • Serve with hazelnuts sprinkled over and a little extra lemon juice to squeeze.
