I feel like I say this about all these meals, but this really is one of my favourites of all time. Just can’t get enough of it and it’s so versatile, you can actually mix different veg or swap the goats cheese for feta or add a little diced chicken (non-vegetarians obviously!) if you wish…. the choice is endless! This recipe was inspired by James Duigan Clean and Lean cook book.
Note: Not suitable for people with dairy allergies. For those allergic to nuts please be aware that this meal contains no tree nuts but does contain coconut.
- 1 Large Butternut Squash
- Coconut Oil
- 1 chilli or chilli flakes
- Purple Sprouting Brocoli or Asparagus
- Pumpkin Seeds
- Feta or Goats Cheese
- Option: Add diced Chicken or add some quinoa grains on a workout day
- The messy part (and the bit I hate!) – peel the Butternut Squash and dice into slices
(you are meant to bake for around 45mins, but if you don’t have time then cook the butternut squash in the microwave to soften up first before transferring to the oven dish)
- Toss the butternut squash in chilli flakes, coconut oil, seeds and black pepper.
- Place in the oven dish and roast for approximately 45mins on Gas Mark 6 (200degree)*(see above)
- In the meantime, blanch the broccoli for approximately 4 minutes
- Place in the oven dish with the butternut squash and seeds approximately 15 mins before the end
- Just before serving, crumble your chosen cheese on top with a little olive oil
- NOTE: if adding chicken it’s best to dice and stir fry in coconut oil, garlic and chilli until cooked and add to the dish at the end
If you want to add a little chicken or some grains be my guest, but this is a nice meal in itself.
