    • 400g butternut squash, peeled and cut into bite size pieces
    • Olive oil for brushing
    • 1 tbsp of ras el hanout
    • 1 fresh pomegranate, seeds only
    • 1 lemon
    • Salt
    • For the goat’s cheese cream:
    • 150g soft goat’s cheese
    • 100ml whipping cream
    • Salt
    • For the pistachio migas:
    • 200g of stale country bread
    • 100g of peeled pistachios
    • 2 tbsp of flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
    • 75ml extra virgin olive oil
    • ½ clove of garlic, peeled
    • Salt and pepper


    This is a quick and delicious vegetarian tapas dish using butternut squash which I chargrill with a sprinkle of Ras el Hanout spice mix and a squeeze of lemon juice and serve with some creamy goat’s cheese, pomegranate seeds and topped with pistachio crumbs. The goat’s cheese cream and pistachio migas can be made in advance, so you only need to cook the butternut squash before you serve…so easy!


    1.  To make the pistachio migas, place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until you have fine crumbs. Place in a bowl and set aside.
    2.  For the goat’s cheese cream, chop the cheese into small pieces and place it in a bowl. Use a fork to break the cheese whilst you slowly start to add the cream until you get the consistency of cream cheese. Season with a touch of salt and place the cheese cream in a piping bag and keep in the fridge until ready to plate.
    3.  Pre-heat you chargrill cast iron pan or grill. Place the butternut squash pieces in a tray and brush with olive oil and a sprinkle of the Moroccan spice mix. Cook in a hot pan for 3 minutes on each side or until well charred. Season with salt and a squeeze of lemon juice.
    4.  To serve, place your pieces of butternut squash on each plate, pipe some of the goat’s cheese cream, sprinkle some pomegranate seeds and finish with some pistachio migas and a drizzle of olive oil. Perfect with a glass of our barrel aged cava from Agusti Torello Mata.
