10ml Caraway Seeds

Few sprigs of fresh thyme


· Bake butternut, garlic cloves whole with their skins on in olive oil in oven at 180°C until tender, i.e. ± 30-40 minutes depending on your oven.

· Allow to cool down, pick out the whole garlic cloves and set aside. Do not peel them.

· Once cooled down, mix in the feta, sliced onion, caraway seeds and thyme and set aside.

· Reduce balsamic vinegar by 50% or until a thick syrup.

. To assemble, divide the broccoli stems between your plates. Top with the butternut mix, add at least two to three garlic cloves (that lots!) Top with butternut mix add at least two to three cloves of garlic per plate and drizzle with the balsamic reduction and serve with crusty country bread.
