HelloFresh - More than food

Happy Sunday you wonderful lot!
So this weekend I thought I'd do something a little different, you all know I love my food and often write the odd #foodie post, reviewing new restaurants and exploring new food markets. This Sunday however, I've gone all DIY! With the help of my friends at HelloFresh I'm sharing one of my favourite recipes with you - Roasted Butternut Squash and Halloumi Jumble... it's heavenly (and healthy?!) So read on and see what the top chefs at Hello Fresh recommend, from techniques to handy tips, they've got it covered.

Roasted Butternut Squash and Halloumi Jumble - 
40 mins (veggie)

'After much consideration (and a broken vegetable peeler), we’ve decided to change our butternut squash peeling technique. Our recommendation is to chop the squash in half widthways to separate the top from the bulb at the bottom. 
Next use your knife to level off the edges (which will also take off the skin). Much easier!'

1 Pre-heat your oven to 210 degrees. Chop the squash in half widthways to separate the top from the bulb at the bottom. Use your knife to level off the edges. Chop the bulb in half and remove the seeds with a spoon. Chop this half into 1cm cubes. Cut the core out of the red pepper and cut a third of the pepper into cubes as small as your knife skills allow. Cut the remaining pepper into 2cm chunks.

2 Toss the squash and the large chunks of red pepper in 1 tbsp of oil. Lay out on a baking tray and cook on the top shelf of the oven for 25 mins.

3 Bring 150ml of water to the boil with half your stock pot. Pour in the bulgur wheat, place a lid on the pot and rest off the heat for
25 mins, or until the water has completely soaked into the wheat.

4 Toast off your pine nuts in a dry frying pan over medium heat. As always, watch your nuts closely
as they can burn quickly. Once toasted, take them out of the pan and set aside.

5 Cut the halloumi into 1cm thick slices. Rub a little bit of olive oil
on each slice and put your frying pan on medium-high heat (use

the same one you used the pine nuts in to save washing up!). Add the slices of halloumi and cook on each side for 2-3 mins or until golden.

6 Toss the bulgur wheat, roasted squash and pepper and raw pepper in a bowl. Add the red wine vinegar and 2 tsp of olive oil. Lastly, gently toss in the rocket and season with a pinch of pepper.

7 Divide the mixture between your bowls. Top with the halloumi and pine nuts, and tuck in!

Expert tip from HelloFresh chef Patrick Drake
“Make sure you don't overcrowd your veggies. Overcrowding means they're more likely to steam and sweat than to roast. Roast your veggies in batches, so they have enough space, rather than overcrowding your baking tray.”
This September, HelloFresh’s in-house chefs Patrick, Mimi, Victoria and Andre are challenging home cooks to become top chefs, providing exclusive access to a database of delicious recipes and expert tips.
