Make this a winter wellness essential - as well as the goodness of pumpkin, it's packed with ginger, turmeric and orange.
- Make a spice mix by toasting mustard seeds, cumin and coriander seeds and peppercorns until fragrant. Cool, then grind to a powder. Store in airtight jar.
- To a mortar add 1 large Tbsp of the spice mix, the salt, grated ginger and turmeric, chopped garlic and chopped red chillies. Grind mixture into a smooth paste and remove to a bowl. Mix in the orange zest and juice.
- Slather paste over roughly chopped pieces of winter squash (buttercup, butternut or pumpkin) and roast in a hot oven until tender.
