Autumn salad with pomegranate, roasted squash, maple caramelized pecans and tahini dressing

 

Summerhouse. Rain. Tea. A good book. Big knits. Cooking.

Six things that are essential ingredients in the perfect cosy relaxing day. Today was such a lovely day, thanks to autumn holiday. I’ve pretty much spend the day dancing around in the summer house kitchen making delicious food while wearing one of my big knits, photograph the outcome and listening to Stephen Fry reading Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows (yep, I’m such a geek, 4th time reading that series). Everything while it was raining cats and dogs outside.

Sommerhus. Regn. Te. En god bog. Store striktrøjer. Madlavning.

Seks ting, der tilsammen udgør ingredienserne i den perfekte hygge- og afslapningsdag. Og lige netop sådan en dag har det været i dag takket være efterårsferie. Jeg har stort set brugt hele dagen på at tulle rundt i sommerhus-køkkenet og lave lækker mad iført en af mine store dejlige striktrøjer, fotografere resultatet mens jeg lyttede til Stephen Fry læse op af Harry Potter og dødsregalierne. Alt imens det stod ned i stænger udenfor. Skønt!

Autumn produce is definitely some of my favourites. I mean, I love the asparagus of spring and the first rhubarb in the summer, but there is something about mushrooms, squash, beets, nuts and apples. I had to make a salad with all of my favourite things.

Efterårsafgrøder er helt sikkert nogle af mine yndlings råvarer. Jeg mener, jeg elsker forårets første asparges og sommerens rabarber, men der er bare noget over svampe, græskar, grønkål, rodfrugter, nødder og æbler. Jeg måtte bare lave en salat med alle mine yndlingsefterårsting!

I found the most beautiful muscat squash at the grocery store this morning, and with Harry Potter in my ears and the ain pouring down outside, this salad came to life. Definitely one of my favourites.

Oh, and for dinner I made this delicious mushroom pasta dish (yep, one of the seldom times where I eat pasta) and this delicious salad – both made by two of my favourite bloggers.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Jeg fandt det smukkeste Muscat de Provence græskar oppe ved grønthandleren i formiddag og med Harry Potter i årene og regnen væltende ned uden for trissede jeg rundt i køkkenet og kreerede denne salat. Helt sikkert min nye yndlings.

Oh, og til familien lavede jeg denne skønne svampe pastaret (jep, en af de sjældne gange jeg spiser pasta) og denne lækre salat – lavet af to af mine yndlingsbloggere.

 

 

Autumn Salad

Yield: 4 servings

A super delicious and nourishing salad with pomegranate, roasted squash, maple caramelized pecans and tahini dressing

Ingredients

  • ¼ muscat squash (900 g.) (or other squash)
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 80 g. pecans
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp. tahini
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 1 pomegranate
  • ½ head savoy cabbage

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C / 390° F. Split the squash in quarters and scoop out the seeds. Cut into wedges and place them on a baking sheet with non stick paper. Mix the olive oil and honey together and brush the squash wedges with it. Bake in the oven for approx. 20 minutes – or until tender.
  2. Heat up a small pan. Lower to medium heat and add on the pecans. Pour the maple syryp over the nuts immediately after and caramelize the pecans. Make sure to stir very often. Pour out onto a piece of non-stick paper when almost all liquid is evaporated.
  3. Make the dressing: stir together tahini, honey and lemon juice. Then thin with water (you might want to add a little more).
  4. Chop the cabbage finely and take out the seeds from the pomegranate.
  5. To assemble: place cabbage on the bottom of a big bowl. Then add the squash. Sprinkle on pomegranate and pecans and drizzle with dressing.
