Ingredients

For the dressing

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Put the squash, parsnips and onions in a large roasting tin, drizzle over 1 tbsp oil and season well, then mix everything together. Add the garlic to the tin, coating in the oil too, and bake for 40 mins or until the vegetables have softened and are browning at the edges. While the vegetables cook, remove the steaks from the fridge and set aside at room temperature.

  • STEP 2

    Add the hazelnuts to a frying pan and heat until toasty brown. Tip onto a plate and wipe out the pan with kitchen paper. Heat the remaining 3 tbsp oil in the frying pan, then add the sage leaves and fry for 1-2 mins until crispy. Set the sage aside with the hazelnuts, leaving the oil in the pan. Season the steaks and cook for 2-3 mins each side for a rare steak (depending on the thickness) or to your liking. Transfer to another plate, then cover loosely with foil and leave to rest for a few mins.

  • STEP 3

    When the vegetables are cooked, remove them from the oven and fish out the garlic cloves. Using the back of a spoon or your hands, squeeze out the soft garlic pulp into a bowl, discarding the skins. Mash the garlic with a fork, then add the dressing ingredients to the bowl, season, and whisk to combine.

  • STEP 4

    Put the spelt in the roasting tray with the vegetables and add most of the hazelnuts. Crumble in the sage leaves and add half the rocket. Drizzle over half the dressing and toss everything together. Tip any juices from the steak over the veg and spelt and thinly slice the steak. Transfer the salad to a big serving platter and top with the sliced steak. Add the remaining hazelnuts and rocket and season with black pepper. Serve the extra dressing on the side.
