Wheatberries are a high fibre, wholegrain. They retain their shape really well and have a nutty flavour, so they're perfect in salads. This roasted butternut squash, red onion, feta and rocket salad is the perfect example of a salad with real bite, topped with mixed seeds.

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6

Once the squash has been in the oven for 15 min, add the onion and dried sage to the tray, then return it to the oven for the remaining cooking time 



Meanwhile, peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Juice the lemon[s]

Mix the chopped garlic and lemon juice with 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil and season with salt and pepper - this is your lemon dressing
