Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius
Place the squash, onions and garlic on a large baking tray lined with baking paper and drizzle the vegetables with oil and water.
Roast the vegetables in the hot oven for 30 minutes until they are soft, gently shaking them half way through.
While the vegetables are roasting, place the sunflower seeds on a small baking tray and roast them for 15 minutes until golden.
Place the oats, chickpea flour, herbs and hemp seeds into a food processor and process them until they form a fine flour.
When the sunflower seeds are golden, take them from the oven and add these to the food processor and process them too.
When the vegetables are ready, take them from the oven and let them cool for five minutes. Then carefully take the peel off the garlic.
Add them to the food processor with the seedy flour and process until you have a smooth mixture, set this aside to rest.
Line a small loaf tin (roughly 15x 10 cm) with baking paper and lightly oil the tin.
Spoon the squash and hemp mixture into the tin and press it down to make a smooth and even layer then top with the hemp seed crunch and press it into an even layer.
Bake the roast in a preheated oven for 45 minutes until golden, then take it from the oven and let it rest in the tin for five minutes and then outside of the tin for five minutes.
To serve, slice the Seed roast into 1-2 cm thick pieces and serve hot with all the festive trimmings!
Place the hemp seeds into a bowl with the rest of the ingredients and mix well, set aside.
