Butternut Squash , Buckwheat , Watercress , Walnut and Goats Cheese Salad

Oh dear whole day of meetings today but there was cake so not all bad .Got home and spent the evening doing more work writing up my notes and putting together
a presentation for a colleague .

Cake

However I was still determined to have put
together some lunch for tommorrow since heading on up to London above was the result I know it tastes good cos I ended up having some when working this evening . I think if sold in M&S this would be some kind of superfood seasonal salad for me it was just delicious and even the colours made me happy. Might even take a picture in the office tommorrow

Method

The butternut squash was roasted this weekend while the cake was baking , thickly sliced , placed on a baking tray & drizzled with a little oil . Roast for 30 minutes at 190degC
Buckwheat another amazing grain to add to my ever expanding collection , lovely fluffy grains . It doesn’t need any soaking , just simmer for 20 minutes and drain. Once cooked it keeps for a good few days to
Who doesn’t love walnuts and like all nuts extra delicous sublime if you toast them , just five minutes in a medium oven , I chucked them in the oven with the butternut squash
Crumbly white goats cheese I think completes this dish but you could omit for a vegan spectacular
Mix together all the ingredients and dress with just a squeeze of lemon and some black pepper
