  • 1 butternut squash
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 tablespoon frozen red chilli
  • 1 tablespoon garlic puree
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • olive oil


Cut the butternut squash into half and lay it flat on a chopping board.

Using a sharp knife, make thinly sliced incisions (half way deep) all the way along each of the halves, being sure not to slice all the way through, to create a hassle back style.

Roast in the oven for 30 minutes at 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6 with a drizzle of oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Scatter the remaining ingredients and diced red onion for the remaining 5 minutes’ roast time.

Serving suggestion: Sprinkle with fresh thyme leaves and rosemary.
