METHOD:


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.


Enjoy!
