Vegan Butternut Squash Spaghetti With Rocket And Hazelnut Pesto

Magdalena Hyla
Fresh and zingy, this butternut squash spaghetti makes a deliciously quick and easy vegan meal to rustle up at any time. Thin ribbons of squash replace traditional pasta to make a gluten-free dish that’s topped with a simple rocket, hazelnut and lemon pesto.

Course Main Course
Servings 2


  • 40 g hazelnuts toasted and roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 70 g bag wild rocket for pesto
  • 155 ml extra virgin olive-oil
  • 1/2 lemon finely zested and juices, plus extra wedges to serve
  • 1 large butternut squash peeled,cut into quarters lengthwise and deseeded


  • How to make it:
  • Put 25g hazelnuts, half the garlic and 50g rocket in a food processor. Pulse a few times until roughly chopped. Add 125ml oil and the lemon juice. Blend again until combined but not completely smooth – you want a pesto with a little bit of texture. Season to taste and set aside.
  • Use a spiralizer to cut the squash quarters into thin ribbons (depending on the size of your spiralizer you may need to cut the squash into thinner wedges). If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can cut the squash into thin wedges, then use a vegetable peeler to peel off ribbons.
  • Heat the remaing oil in a large, wide pan. Add the squash ribbons and saute for 2-3 mins – you may need to do this in batches. Add the remaining garlic and splash of water to help the squash steam gently. Cook for two mins, trying not to stir too much as the squash may break up.
  • Stir most of the rocket pesto into the pan (reserving some to serve) so that it just coats the squash and heats through.
  • Divide the squash spaghetti between plates and top with the remaining rocket leaves, chopped hazelnuts and grated lemon zest. Drizzle over the remaining pesto and serve with a lemon wedge on the side to squeeze over.


Tip: Butternut squash adds goergous colour and sweetness to this dish, but you could also try using courgetti or regular spaghetti if not caring to a gluten-free diet.

Vegan Macaroni Cheese

Magdalena Hyla
Hearty, rich and creamy macaroni cheese is a comfort food classic and this vegan mac ’n‘ cheese recipe ensures it can still be enjoyed on a dairy and egg-free vegan diet. Sweet butternut squash adds richness to the sauce and a crunchy crouton topping is the perfect finish. What’s more, this recipe is healthy, too.

Servings 2


  • 1 medium butternut squash seeded and chopped into 2cm cubes
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 300 g macaroni
  • 1 l unsweetened soya or rice milk
  • 1 onion
  • 100 g dairy-free soya spread
  • 80 g plain flour
  • 1 tbsp Marmite Hefe extract
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • large handful baby spinach
  • 40 g homemade vegan bread croutons
  • 10 cherry tomatoes halved


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C. Spread the squash out on a baking tray, drizzle with oil and toss to combine. Roast in the oven for 20 mins.
  • While the squash is in the oven, cook the macaroni as per instructions.
  • Peel and chop the onion in half. Add to a pan with the milk. Gently heat until bubbling. Remove the onion and set the milk aside.
  • Melt the spread in a large saucepan over a low heat. Slowly add the flour, whisking until a paste forms. Then slowly pour the warm milk into the paste, whisking after each addition until smooth. Once you have added all of the milk and you have a smooth liquid, let it bubble for 8 mins over a low heat, whisking occasionally to prevent sticking, until thick. Stir in the Marmite and English mustard.
  • Once cooked, mash a third of the roasted butternut into the white sauce. Season to taste. Drain the pasta and tip it into the sauce along with the rest of the squash chunks and the baby spinach. Stir gently to combine, then transfer the mixture to a large, ovenproof dish..
  • Put the croutons in a sandwich bag and gently bash with a rolling pin until they are a rough crum-like consistency. In a bowl, add a small splash of water to the crumbs, combine and leave to stand for a few minutes. Dot the halved cherry tomatoes over the top of the pasta and scatter over the crumbs. Bake in the oven for 20 mins or until golden and bubbling.


A light unoaked chardonnay for a simple creamy macaroni cheese works well!
