my first try with butternut squash was a soup, I added a little curry powder and my other half thought it was delish! Also have seen a curry receipe on the receipe board which is made from butternut squash too...sounds nice :)

If you're getting bored of squash chips, try making fritters.
Grate the squash and mix with herbs, chopped onion and an egg and fry with a few squirts of oil. Quite low in PP...

Sweet potato wedges and fries are ace. I also make soup with mine. Peel and chop into chunks, chuck into a roasting tin with onion garlic and fresh chilli, roast until cooked, chuck into food processor with stock and blitz. It is so thick and yummy. Also top with a spoon of fat free yoghurt if I find that I have put too much chilli in hehe :-o

I need to find the recipe, but I made a gorgeous lentil stew with pumpkin and butternut squash. Big dollop of sour cream on top, so good.

They are supposed to be quite sloppy! Try to think if them as messy splats rather than perfectly formed patties.

They also need to be cooked for quite a while over a low heat to ensure they are cooked and that the outside goes all charred and sticky.

If you need something to bind them better, try a spoonful of corn flour. :)

425g/half a Butternut Squash, cut into 30mm cubes (leave the skin on) remove seeds.(s)
1 Ltr vegetable stock
1 tbsp. madras curry powder
1 onion, finely chopped (s)
1 carrot, finely chopped (s)
1 celery stick, finely chopped (s)

(When buying butternut squash check that it sounds hollow when tapped, is a good orange colour with no bruises or green tinge.

They store well in a cool room wrapped in a dark paper bag, NOT in a plastic bag as it will rot!)
