Feta and butternut squash are a match made in heaven, and the crisp outer shell of the filo is the ideal finishing touch

Ingredients

Butternut Squash

800 g, peeled, deseeded and cut into 1cm cubes

Cumin seeds

1 teaspoons, level, crushed

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Kale, raw

100 g, chopped

Spring Onions

4 medium, sliced

Parsley, fresh

28 g, chopped

Feta Cheese

100 g, crumbled

Filo Pastry

90 g

Broccoli, raw

4 portion(s), medium, broken into small florets, each halved

Watercress

100 g, rocket and spinach salad

Balsamic Glaze

1 tablespoons

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, fan 200°C, gas mark 7. Put the squash in a shallow baking tray with the cumin and mist with cooking spray. Season and toss together to coat. Bake for 20 minutes until tender and golden
  2. Meanwhile, bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the kale for 1-2 minutes, then drain and rinse under cold water to cool. Put the kale in a bowl with the spring onions, parsley and feta. Once the squash is cooked, add it to the bowl, crushing with the back of a wooden spoon. Season and mix well.
  3. Lay the pastry sheets on a clean work surface and mist with the cooking spray. Put a quarter of the squash mixture in a rectangle on the edge of 1 pastry sheet. Roll into a flat parcel, folding in the sides as you go, securing with a mist of cooking spray if needed. Repeat to make 3 more.
  4. Put onto a baking tray then scatter the broccoli around the parcels. Mist with cooking spray, season well and bake for 10-15 minutes until golden.
  5. Serve the borek on a bed of the salad leaves with the balsamic glaze drizzled over.

Notes

Chorizo and squash are great together – add 75g chopped chorizo to the stuffing mix, if you like. Remember to adjust the SmartPoints.
