Roasted aubergine, squash & feta grain bake

As the tide turns against processed carbs such as white bread, so-called ‘ancient grains’ like spelt, kamut and bulgur are making a comeback. They provide slow-release carbs, fibre and may help lower cholesterol and blood pressure. This hearty dish smashes all your 5-a-day, and more!

Ingredients

  • 1 aubergine, cut into 2cm chunks
  • 300g prepared butternut squash, cut into roughly 2cm chunks
  • 1 large red onion, cut into wedges
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp chopped thyme leaves
  • 200g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 100g pearled spelt or barley
  • 100g vegetarian feta
  • 2 tbsp pine nuts
  • 30g wild rocket

Step by step

Get ahead
Prepare to the end of step 2 up to 3 days ahead. Reheat the veg and grains together in the oven for 10 minutes before adding the feta and pine nuts.
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6. Toss the aubergine, squash and red onion with the oil, paprika, thyme and seasoning. Spread out in a large roasting tin and cook in the oven for 20 minutes. Mix the tomatoes into the roasting veg and return to the oven for 15 minutes or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, add the spelt or barley to a pan of boiling water and cook for 20-25 minutes until tender.
  3. Drain the spelt and mix in with the veg. Crumble on the feta and scatter with pine nuts, then bake for a further 5-10 minutes, turning the oven up to 220°C, fan 200°C, gas 7. Scatter with rocket just before serving.
    Tip
    You can also use a 250g pack of pre-cooked grains of your choice, or rice.
