About this recipe: Roasted butternut squash and halloumi salad with pine nuts, beans and couscous or lentils. Healthy but super yummy! This is a fab accompaniment to a BBQ or gorgeous as a light summer supper. Super easy and cheap.

Serves: 4 

  • 1 good sized butternut squash
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 pack lentils or couscous
  • 1/2 pack runner beans, halved
  • 1 handful pine kernels
  • 1 pack halloumi (light or normal depending on desire!)
  • honey and mustard dressing to taste

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Extra time:10min cooling  ›  Ready in:50min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Peel and chop butternut squash into bite size chunks (not too thick) and coat in olive oil then season with salt and pepper.
  2. Roast in the preheated oven until tender, about 20 minutes. Prepare couscous and boil beans for several minutes. Roast pine nuts for 2 minutes and fry your halloumi until browned. I have an AGA and like to do this on the hob using my non-stick magic AGA paper.
  3. Allow all ingredients to cool then add them to the couscous and add a home-made dressing of oil, honey and mustard.


Don't be afraid to try different dressings or veggies with this salad. It's really versatile! i.e. season veg like asparagus is a nice alternative to the beans.

So yummy! A big fan of halloumi and root vegetables! Wouldn't change a thing - 30 Mar 2011


Ok recipe. Instructions were fine and easy to follow. All the separate ingredients were lovely, but just not sure about it all mixed together. Personal preference maybe. - 19 Nov 2013
