Method

  • Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and line a baking tray with parchment.

  • Tip the butternut squash onto the tray, drizzle with 2 tsp oil and season well.

  • Roast for 20 mins, then push the squash to one end of the tray, add the broccoli to the other end and drizzle with 1 tsp oil. Season and roast for 10 mins more.

  • Meanwhile, make the dressing. Put all the ingredients in the small bowl of a food processor, add 1 tbsp water and a pinch of salt.

  • Blitz to make a loose dressing, adding a little more water if necessary.

  • Squeeze the pouch of quinoa to separate the grains, then tip into a large bowl. Add the herbs, spring onions, pomegranate seeds and pistachios.

  • Add the remaining 1 tbsp oil, season and toss everything together. Add the roasted veg too.

  • Divide the salad between two plates and drizzle over the dressing. Halve the avocado and remove the stone, then slide a dessertspoon between the skin and flesh to remove it in one piece.

  • Place on a chopping board, rounded side up, and thinly slice. Squeeze over the lemon juice, then slide a knife underneath and lift half the avocado onto each salad.

  • Top with the sprouts and grind over a little pepper, if you like.
