I decided this caramelised butternut squash side dish needed a whole blog post of its own because it was really that delicious! And so super easy too.

We had it with a paprika roasted chicken, roasted garlic mash and red cabbage and beetroot and it was one of the best meals we’ve had in a while. You can throw this squash in the oven 40 minutes before the rest of your meal is done and forget about it until five minutes before the end of cooking when you chuck a few herbs in a pestle and mortar or blender to finish it off.

This was a perfect Sunday night meal which we ate after I arrived back in London from a weekend at my parent’s. I was home to go shopping for a bridesmaid dress for my childhood best friend’s wedding (people my age really can’t be getting married can they?!). After an exhausting day of shopping we managed to find a really great dress which all four bridesmaids approved of which is a pretty resounding success!

Anyway, make this next time you need a new vegetable side dish to try.
