The countdown to the book launch is well and truly on now–I’m so excited. I think the first advance copies arrive in October, so I can’t even imagine how it will feel to hold it in my hands for the first time!

I’m also loving all the autumn veggies–this gorgeous Kabocha squash appeared in my organic box and was just waiting to be roasted and served on a bed of creamy hummus!!
I also made a delicious toasted walnut harissa dip to dollop and stir into the hummus–seriously tasty!

Did you notice I love roasting veg? Here are a few reasons I love it so much;
It’s one of the easiest meals ever–I could eat a big bowl of roast veggies served with some dips or tahini sauce and toasted seeds every day and probably not get bored.
It intensifies the flavour of most veg–roast cauliflower..mmm
And guess what–it’s actually great for preserving nutrients!

So get roasting guys 😉

To roast the squash
