Apart from in a soup I honestly get stuck with what to do with butternut squash. Lucky I got inspiration online for this recipe but just decided plain roasted squash stuffed with roasted vegetables just wasn’t enough for me. I’m a bit of a kid still when it comes to vegetables, sometimes I do need them disguised in sauces so I can make myself eat them (I’m much more of a fruit person). So what better way to liven this recipe up than with one of my favorite cheeses – goats cheese. Serve this roasted butternut squash with creamy melted goats cheese recipe with a side salad and big slice of buttered crusty bread and you are sorted!
If your more of a spicy person (I’m a wimp when it comes to hot spicy) then why not sprinkle your butternut squash and vegetables with some chilli powder – i’m sure it would work fine 🙂 What other variations do you think would work? Let me know your ideas by adding a comment at the bottom! This recipe is for one stuffed butternut squash which was enough for 2 people :).
Serves 1 -2 Prep Time 20 mins Cook Time 1 hour Difficulty: Medium
- 1 Whole Butternut Squash
- Half a Red Onion (finely chopped)
- 2 Garlic Cloves (crushed)
- 1 Tomato (chopped)
- 1 Red Pepper (chopped)
- 1/2 Courgette (chopped)
- 100g Goats Cheese
- Olive oil
- Salt & Pepper
- Preheat the oven to 180C. Cut your butternut squash in half and scoop out the pips and pulp. Score your butternut squash and rub in a small amount of olive oil all around the scored butternut squash and season. Bake your butternut squash for 45 minutes.
- Whilst your butternut squash is roasting you can prepare the vegetables. Cut up your onion, crush your garlic and chop up the tomato, red pepper & courgette and place them on a baking tray. Pour 1 and a half tablespoons of olive oil all over your vegetables and season well. Roast these vegetables alongside the butternut squash for 20 minutes.
- Once your vegetables are cooked leave them to one side until your butternut squash has been in the oven for 45 minutes. Once your squash is ready remove from the oven and layer the roasted vegetables all over the squash. Bake your stuffed butternut squash for a further 10 minutes.
- Finally, after 10 minutes remove the squash from the oven and layer the goats cheese on top of all your vegetables and squash. Bake your goats cheese topped butternut squash until the cheese is melted and golden on top.Serve up your squash with a salad and a generous helping of crusty bread, delicious!
