    Hey all,

    So ive bought a butternut squash. How do I roast it? Do you have to take the skin off? Do you spray it with frylight? How long do you roast it for?

    Thanks :D xx

    Hi Sarah-Jayne,

    I dare say you'll get other methods but I peel mine using normal veg peeler, cut in half lengthwise, scoop out seeds & then just cut into chunks. Spray with FL and roast as potato.
    I also love boiling it with sweet potato, onion & herbs/spices and blitzing into a lovely soup (lentils & chick peas can be added if preferred).

    I have it most days, it's amazing! It's one of my favourite SW food finds :D

    As said above, peel with potato peeler, cut into chips, spray with frylight, sprinkle with cracked black pepper, and roast for about 40 mins.

    Love the soups! Especially with roasted red pepper.
    I just peel it with a knife, scoop out seeds and spray with fry light. Not sure how long to roast it.

    I like to throw it in with a curry, treat it like you would root veg.

    Yeah you should peel it but if you already cut it up and it's too difficukt to get the skin off not to worry! just stick it in the oven and when it's ready to serve the skin should come off easily :D

    You don't have to peel it. A friend of mine used to bbq it and it always had the skin on. I leave it on if I can't be bothered to peel and it's fine but sometimes just a bit tougher round the edge. Should be fine if you're roasting it though.

    You can roast it with the skin and then the skin comes off easily x

    It sure is!
    I love it as chips, mashed, roasted (like roast potatoes) and in risotto & curries!
    It's so versatile. I discovered it whilst weaning my son 8 years ago, I have never looked back

    That's good then I will start using it as chips as I find it difficult sometimes to have extra super free food

    Quick tip:

    After peeling, scooping and dicing, just add some olive oil and brown it in a large pan for about 5 minutes.
    Add some curry powder, water and milk (proportion 2-to-1) and let it simmer for 30 minutes.
    Then blend it :)

    It's magically filling :)
