Stuffed butternut squash

This lovely veggie dish is quick and easy to make.

Ingredients

Butternut squash

Olive oil

Salt & pepper

Quinoa

Onion

Peppers

Kale

Carrots

Parmesan or other grated cheese

Method

First cut butternut squash in halves and bake on high heat (crust on top) some olive oil, salt and pepper, when soft turn them and bake until lightly browned

Start cooking the quinoa, and in the meantime, chop the kale, onion, coloured peppers, and carrots (or any vegetables of your choice).

Fry everything in olive oil. When lightly browned add 1 cup of water with chicken stock. Cook until almost dry and add the quinoa; leave it to cool down.

After the butternut squash is cooled down, scrape the inside but leave a good layer of squash (scroll down for an idea of what to do with the leftover squash)*

With a small spoon put a layer of quinoa, continue with the grated cheese (you can use cheddar and Parmesan), add another layer of quinoa and finish with grated cheese on top.

Bake for another 10 minutes and it’s ready to eat.
