What is butternut squash exactly?
Wikipedia tells us that: “Butternut squash, also known in Australia and New Zealand as butternut pumpkin, and “Batana” in Sri Lanka is a type of winter squash. It has a sweet, nutty taste similar to that of a pumpkin. It has yellow skin and orange fleshy pulp.”
My short explanation based on my taste buts: its’s a perfect combination between pumpkin and carrots. In both colour and flavour. And tastes the best when baked!
Here is a recipe i’ve made today, for my brunch!
- butternut squash (350 gr) - it can be a whole butternut squash that you can slice or already sliced butternut squash pack
- mustard&honey dressing
- oven tray
How I did it
First things first Get the butternut squash peeled, cleaned and sliced; the tomatos chopped as well. Prep the oven tray by adding a table spoon of olive oil so the butternut squash does not stick to the tray. Get the oven on to warm it up!
Get it baked! Add the butternut squash slices in, add the tomato slices in between and add the oven tray inside the oven - i left it at 200 Celsius degrees for 20 minutes. It depends on how thick or thin the butternut squash slices are - the aim is to get these as soft as possible to that the butternut melts in your mouth when eating it!
Once ready, season! Remove the oven tray once the 20 minutes passed, add the slices on the plate and the tomatoes as well, then add in the honey&mustard dressing and prepare for a flavoured veggie dish that melts in your mouth, literally!
