Recipe: Roasted Butternut Squash & Sweet Potato (Side Dish)

This is a fab little side dish that can be adapted to so many meals by changing which herbs / spices you use with it. We've used curry, cumin & garam masala to serve with a curry, garlic and oregano to serve with pan fried chicken & tomatoes, rosemary & thyme to serve with roasted meats... you get the idea. It's just so versatile! And very simple to do too.

You need:

  • 2 tbs vegetable oil
  • 2 medium sized sweet potatoes
  • 1 medium sized butternut squash
  • Your own choice of herbs / spices

How to:

  • Heat the oil in a roasting tin.
  • Peal and chop the sweet potato into 1 inch squares, I like to par boil them but that's a personal choice.
  • De-seed, peel and chop the butternut squash to the same size.
  • Once the oil is hot add the sweet potato and squash, sprinkle on the herbs / spices and carefully toss to coat.
  • Roast on a medium high heat for 40-45 mins or until tender and just starting to brown on the edges.

As simple as that!

You could also use this as a base for soup. Transfer to a large pan, add two pints of vegetable stock and blend. Serve with crusty bread.

Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.
