Total time




  • 1 little Kabocha squash

  • ½ cup / 100 g feta cheese, crumbled

  • 1 oz baby spinach

  • ¼ cup pine nuts

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 + ½ tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

How to

  • Heat the oven to 360°F/180°C. Place the whole squash on the oven tray on a piece of parchment paper and bake until it’s tender enough to be easily pierced with a fork. It should take around 30-40 minutes and then you should be able to easily remove the skin.
  • Add the spinach to a big bowl and toss with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and black pepper.
  • Heat a small pan and roast the pine nuts for 4-5 minutes, shaking the pan often.
  • Add the squash in pieces, feta, and pine nuts and toss gently again to combine. Serve immediately.
