Millie Mackintosh Tweeted this delicious-looking snap of her goat's cheese, butternut squash and avocado salad today, and we've got the recipe!

Millie showcased her dish with the hashtag #healthybutnaughty - probably because of the goat's cheese which is high in fat.

But hold the phone, because goat's cheese is still lower in fat and higher in protein than cow's cheese (like cheddar), so tech-ni-callyyyy it's healthy?! Plus, butternut squash is high in fibre and vitamin A for glowing skin and avocados are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. Woop woop.

Here's the recipe if you want to give it a go...

Millie Mackintosh's goat's cheese, butternut squash and avocado salad

INGREDIENTS

  • Half a butternut squash, diced
  • 1 round of goat's cheese
  • 1 avocado, cored and cubed
  • Handful of rocket leaves, watercress and spinach leaves
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to season
  • Chilli flakes, optional

METHOD

Peel, de-seed and chop half a butternut squash. Spread onto a baking tray, drizzle with olive and chilli flakes (if you like a bit of spice) and roast in a hot oven for 45-50 minutes or until the squash is crispy on the outside and soft in the middle.

Slice a round of goat's cheese into small cubes. Core an avocado and slice.

Create a simple dressing of balsamic vinegar and olive oil (three parts oil to one part vinegar) and set aside.

Fill a bowl with the salad leaves, cover with the avocado, goat's cheese and warm butternut squash and drizzle with the dressing. Toss to make sure the ingredients are well mixed.

Serve immediately. You can also try this recipe with roasted red peppers, roasted sweet potato and tomatoes.
