    Just made this for lunch - it's superfree, super quick to make and made of speed foods too!

    1 butternut squash cut into big chunks, skin left on.
    Put in a roasting tin and sprinkle with 1tbsp crushed cumin seeds, 1tbsp crushed coriander seeds, salt and pepper and a sprinkle of dried chilli flakes. Spray with frylight and roast at 200 deg C for 4 mins or until soft.

    Stick in a blender with a tin of tomatoes and the same quantity of water (or to your required texture) and blitz until smooth.

    Serve with a big blob of natural yoghurt and some torn basil leaves if you have them!!

    No you can use the ground, I just used seed cos I had them! Probably use a bit less of the ground though.

    Can you eat the butternut squash skin then? I always peel it.

    I always eat the skin. I roast it in chunks or wedges, skin on and eat it. It goes soft and chewy.
    It's a faff to cut it off and you waste half the squash, leave it on I say!!
