This nutty bake is made with butternut squash, chestnuts and forestière mushrooms and is ideal for sharing with the family on chilly days or as part of a festive celebration. Serve this vegan and gluten-free recipe with a simple green salad for a winning dish.

  1. Preheat oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat and cook the onion, garlic and butternut squash chunks for 10 mins, stirring occasionally, until softened. Add the mushrooms and rosemary or thyme and cook for a further 3-4 mins until the mushrooms have softened, then add the chestnuts.
  2. Pour in the cream and continue to heat for a further 2-3 mins until the cream bubbles. Remove from the heat and season generously to taste. Stir again, then transfer to a 1.8ltr (3pt) gratin dish.
  3. Put the parsley, nuts and seeds in a food processor and whizz until finely chopped yet still retaining some chunky pieces. Scatter over the butternut squash mixture in the gratin dish and bake for 15-20 mins until piping hot and lightly golden in places. Serve with gluten-free bread and a simple dressed green salad, if you like.
