We want our blog to be a place where we can share our green living with you. We hope that you’ll journey with us as we open our doors and welcome you into our home for a personal touch of how we are living green. So sit back, relax and enjoy!

Don't you just love cooking in season? It's pretty much like fashion - either you're in or you're out. Lucky for us, we managed to store in tip top shape a butternut squash that was generously given to us by our organic farmer last fall.


Butternut squash is a fruit that you can roast, toast, puréed and believe me, you can do a lot more. And for supper, we're in a mood for something roasted.

Ingredients:

1 medium size butter nut squash

1 - 2 cloves of garlic

2 - 3 sprigs of fresh thyme

1 - 2 TBS of olive oil

Cherry tomatoes - halved

Salt and pepper to taste

Grated cheese (optional)


Steps:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Clean and cut squash in half - lengthwise and remove the seeds

3. Crush garlic and thyme together and mix with olive oil

4. Brush the mixture over the squash and place some in the middle of the squash together with tomatoes

5. Roast the squash for 30 - 45 mins, until flesh is fork-tender

6. If use cheese, sprinkle over the squash and roast for another 10 mins

7. Sprinkle with black pepper and salt


Variation:

- Add some nuts to the mixture or sprinkle over with the cheese

- Sprinkle maple syrup all over the squash for a slightly sweet taste


Let us know what you think! :)
