Spicy butternut and feta salad

Spicy butternut and feta salad



  • 10
    cumin seeds
  • 1 round of feta (cubed)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 10
    fennel seeds
  • 500
    butternut (peeled & cubed)
  • Splash of olive oil
  • 10
    coriander seeds


Dry fry all seeds on high heat for about 2min. Put in mortar and pestle and crush finely. Cook cubed butternut in microwave until done but not too soft. Drain butternut and fry in pan with a splash of olive oil. Allow the butternut to blacken slightly as this adds to the flavour. Turn off heat, add crushed spices and mix well. Add feta cubes, mix well, season with salt and pepper to taste (remember feta is salty)! Transfer to serving bowl and enjoy!
