Andy McLeish of Chapter One shares his all-time favourite Christmas dinner sides

Ingredients

2 tsp brown sugar

1/2 tsp ground coriander

Freshly grated nutmeg

1 tbsp mustard

2 small potimarron (onion squash), peeled, seeded and sliced into 1/2 inch think pieces

6 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp pomegranate molasses

1 tbsp red wine vinegar

1 tbsp chopped parsley

Method

Heat the oven to 220ºC degrees. Combine the sugar, coriander, nutmeg and mustard in a small bowl. In a separate bowl place the pieces of potimarron and add half of the sugar and spice mixture.

Combine thoroughly and then add three tablespoons of olive oil, mix again. Place on a baking tray and roast in the oven for 25-30 mins, turning once during that time until golden brown.

Meanwhile heat the molasses and red wine vinegar in a pan. Remove from the heat, add the remaining sugar/spice mixture and three tablespoons of olive oil and whisk together.

Place the roasted potimarron on a serving tray and drizzle with the pomegranate reduction and serve. Garnish with the chopped parsley.
