Ingredients

  • 1 round squash (around 1.2kg prepared weight)
  • Olive oil
  • 1 garlic bulb
  • 80g dried breadcrumbs
  • 2 rosemary sprigs, finely chopped
  • 3 onions, sliced
  • 3 x 400g tins butter beans
  • 3 tbsp mascarpone
  • Juice of 1 lemon

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6. Cut the squash into wedges and deseed. Toss with olive oil in a large baking tray, add garlic, then roast for 40 minutes, turning once.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a glug of olive oil in a frying pan. Fry the breadcrumbs and rosemary until golden, then tip into a bowl. Heat another glug of oil in the pan. Add the onions, season and fry until soft. Add the butter beans, drained. Add half a tin of water and bubble until it evaporates.
  3. Once the garlic has had 30 minutes in the oven, remove it and squeeze the flesh into the beans. Whizz in a food processor with the mascarpone and the lemon juice until smooth. Taste and season, then serve with the squash wedges, scattered with the breadcrumbs.
