This dish makes a hearty winter salad thats full of nutrients or it can be a perfect side dish to a main course. The delicious sweet and chewy honey roasted butternut squash goes perfectly with the slight crunch from the pumpkin seeds. A tasty combination with the creamy goats cheese and puy lentils. The butternut squash can be roasted in simple chunks or in lovely crescent shaped slices for a quirkier presentation. Go a step further and roast the butternut with garlic cloves, fresh thyme and rosemary leaves for a winter earthiness. Great served with crumbled blue cheese and toasted chopped walnuts to!
