Baked Squash

This is a tasty little side dish and has a variety of textures; it looks good, and tastes expensive.


  • 1 butternut squash, in coarse chunks
  • 1tbsp peanut butter
  • 2tbsp honey
  • 1tbsp olive oil or groundnut oil, or similar
  • Liberal scattering of seeds (I use a combination of poppy, sunflower and pumpkin seeds)
  • Spices (cumin, ground coriander, chilli powder or flakes)


Mix them all together in a casserole dish, and bake for about 40 mins or until tender. Every 10-15 minutes, check it’s doing OK, and give it a stir round to coat the squash with the honey, oil and peanut butter.

Serve it with pretty much anything.
