PERFECT YOUR SQUASH

Roasted butternut squash


I got asked by a few of you lovely lot how to roast the perfect squash so decided to share my methods 🙂 This is the way I always do mine to get a little crispy edge but soft squash every time!


All you need is:
Squash
Knife
Roasting dish
Spray oil

1. Preheat your oven to 180oc. Peel then deseed your squash and slice into centimeter thick slices. 


Make sure you save the seeds, I’ve got a nifty trick!







2. Layer your slices so they overlap slightly.
This is important as it creates steam between the layers creating soft squash.

3. Spray with a light coating of oil then bake for 40 minutes.













4. With the seeds, layer onto a baking tray in one layer, season with salt, oregano and chilli flakes then bake with the squash for the last 15 minutes.

Work great as a snack, in a salad or on soup for contrast in texture!

Serve and enjoy : ) x

Hi! I'm Bea, I am a food teacher at a secondary school. I live just outside Manchester and all its foodie offerings. This is my blog Bea's Bites Online, I'll be posting all about food and drink with an added smattering of travel. I am lucky enough to have grown up with a variety of influences, my mum is from Zimbabwe, my dad is from Ghana and I grew up in a village in the North West, so food has always been a blend and balance of cultures for me. From being little, food has played a large part in our family, whether it be for celebrations, commiserations or comfort. I began helping out in the kitchen from a young age and was fortunate enough to be given the reigns on occasion from the age of 11. I love being in the kitchen and having the opportunity to create something to make others smile. Whether it be an autumnal main or a gooey dessert :) I am a total believer in happy eating. Food should put a smile on your face no whether it's a weekday, after work dinner or a special occasion. I love following recipes and do think it is sometimes a necessity but I also think that food should be personal and geared towards what you like and I hope this comes across in my blog. I hope you enjoy reading my posts, let me know if you stop by, it will definitely put a smile on my face!
