For the topping

For the dressing


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.

  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and fry until softened.

  3. Add the leeks and cavolo nero and cook for 3-4 minutes.

  4. Add the squash, tomatoes, wine and season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Simmer for 5-6 minutes, then divide between four individual ovenproof dishes or ramekins.

  5. For the topping, place the flour, baking powder, salt and butter into a food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

  6. Add the soured cream and pulse again until it just comes together as a very sticky dough.

  7. Spoon dollops of the topping over the contents of each ramekin, then bake for 25 minutes, or until crisp and golden-brown.

  8. For the dressing, place the oil, basil and lemon juice into a clean food processor and blend until smooth.

  9. Serve the cobblers at the table in their ramekins and spoon over the dressing.
