Method

  1. Heat the oven to 220°C; line a roasting tray with foil.
  2. Toss the diced squash in 1 Tbsp olive oil and the sugar to coat; spread coated squash out on the roasting tray; roast until the squash begins to go colour on the edges – approx. 15 minutes; put to one side.
  3. Meanwhile, take the morcilla - straight from the fridge - remove the casing and cut with a sharp thin knife into thin slices - approx. 5mm; put to one side.
  4. Heat the stock and sherry to a low simmer.
  5. In a saucepan, cook the onion and spices in 2 tbsp olive oil over medium heat until just softened - approx. 5 minutes; stir in the rice to coat, followed by the apricots and garlic.
  6. Stir in the stock, a ladle at a time, and simmer until most of the stock has been absorbed – approx. 18 - 20 minutes; taste for seasoning.
  7. Gently stir in the crème fraiche, fold in the morcilla and the squash and cook gently for a further few minutes; the rice should be moist and creamy, rather than firm.
  8. Switch off the heat and leave for a few minutes.
  9. Serve garnished with mint leaves.
