Butternut squash snack

I bought butternut squash - with the aim of cooking something with it. I just never got round to doing so, and the label said use within 10 days...and to be honest, I think I had gone beyond I thought why not un-complicate things and do something super super simple, made up from a simple brain like mine :) 

This will probably not qualify as a recipe, but I thought why not share it, maybe one day you might fancy snacking on this too :)

  • Skill: Super duper easy 
  • Serves: If you are very hungry - then yourself only (but this served two people)
  • Prep time: 5 mins
  • Cooking time: 20ish mins

What you will need:

1 butternut squash
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
olive oil to drizzle 

How to make:

1) Peel the butternut squash, then slice length wise. Using a spoon remove the seeds, and cut the butternut squash into chunks

2) Place onto an oven tray, lined with foil. Add the garlic and drizzle a good amount of olive oil - get your hands dirty and mix to ensure the butternut squash is coated

3) Place in a hot oven for 20 mins or so, or until the butternut squash is soft

Enjoy with a sauce of your preference if you wish, for has to be ketchup :)

This really is a delicious snack, and like you have seen, super easy! The good thing is substitute the butternut squash for something else if you want, sweet potatoes would be yummy, maybe even a pumpkin! Be creative - and let me know :) Enjoy!
