Stuffed butternut squash

This is a very versatile vegetable, which you can prepare in different ways.  You can bake, boil, fry it in whatever you want, you can go wrong. You are spoilt for choice when it comes to stuffing it, as with this vegetable, anything goes!! This vegetable is prominent during the winter months and you can serve it for starters, or particularly as a light supper in the evening sitting by the fire!!  Here is my own take of the “Stuffed Butternut Squash”.

Set oven 200c/G6

Ingredients: (2)

1 butternut squash (250g)

2tbsp vegetable oil

2tbsp mixed stuffing of your choice

50gr basil chopped (remainder for garnishing)

1 small onion chopped

1tsp paprika pepper

2cloves garlic, chopped

100gr Parmesan cheese (grated)

thumb sized ginger, chopped

Set microwave on high and there goes the squash for 12 minutes. Cool enough to handle and then cut in half lengthways and scoop out first the seeds (discard), then the flesh.Great care should be taken not to pierce the skin.Heat oil and fry onions, garlic, and the ginger until soft. Remove from heat and empty its contents into the scooped out flesh and the stuffing, basil and mix well to bind.  Fill the squashes with the contents, top with the cheese and then return to the oven to cook for about 15 minutes or thereabouts.

Enjoy!!
