Butternut squash is one of my favourite autumn vegetables. I love the colour, the smell and the taste and it works best roasted or in soups.
First cut off the ends.
Then peel it.
Cut in half.
Using a spoon remove the seeds and fibres.
Cut into bite-size cubes or slices and then season to taste with olive oil, garlic, pepper and a generous amount of salt.
If you like it sliced then check out my rosemary roasted butternut squash in a mushroom and lentil tomato sauce here.
Roasted butternut squash ingredients:
- 1 butternut squash
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Garlic powder or pureed garlic
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
Preheat your oven to 200C (390F).
First, cut off the ends of your butternut squash.
Then peel it (the skin is quite tough).
Cut it into halves.
Using a table spoon remove the seeds and stringy fibres.
Then either cut it into bite-sized cubes or slices roughly 1cm thick.
Transfer to a bowl and season with a good amount of olive oil, garlic powder or pureed garlic and salt and pepper to taste (I normally use quite a lot of salt as the butternut squash's sweet taste can be overpowering). You can also add the juice of 1/2 lemon for a more tangy taste as well..
Mix everything together and then roast in the oven for around 25 minutes.
