Roasted Summer Squash with Thyme and Charred Lemon


· 1 lb summer squash· 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil· 1 tsp salt· 1/2 tsp ground black pepper· 1 tsp fresh lemon thyme leaves ((or normal thyme))· 1 lemon· fresh parsley - for garnish


Step 1Pre-heat oven 220ºC/430ºFStep 2Chop the squash into bite sized chunks. (I find cutting the small ones in half and the larger ones into quarters is about right)Step 3Drizzle the squash with the EVOO.Step 4Add the salt, pepper, fresh thyme leaves and zest of the lemon to the squash and mix well to ensure everything is coated.Step 5Cut the lemon in half and nestle it amongst the squash.Step 6Roast for 20 minutes at the top of the oven, until the squash has some charred edges and the lemon is all jammy and caramelised.Step 7Garnish with fresh parsley to serve
