We examine non-Abelian T-duality on backgrounds preserving N = 1 super- symmetry showing how backgrounds with SU(3)-structure are mapped to backgrounds with SU(2)-structure. We provide the transformation rules for the corresponding pure spinors. We use these techniques to construct new flavoured solutions of type IIA super- gravity.
