Preparation

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees celsius/350 fahrenheit. Bring a large pan of water to the boil.
  2. Cube the squash and bake in the oven with a little sunflower and salt for 30mins or until soft.
  3. Halve the leek and finely slice. Heat a little sunflower oil in a pan and lightly fry the leek until soft.
  4. Mince the garlic and ginger together and add to pan. Fry for a few minutes before adding the kale.
  5. Wash and slice the kale, disposing of any hard stalks, and add to pan. Season with a pinch of gomasio, splash of sesame oil, soy sauce and sushi vinegar. Cook until it begins to wilt.
  6. Cook the noodles according to the packet, reserve a little liquid, drain (and rinse if desired) and add to pan along with the cooked butternut squash. Gently combine, adding some reserved cooking liquid if necessary.
  7. Season with soya sauce and serve. Finish with a final sprinkling of gomasio – I am currently obsessed with this stuff.
