Feta-stuffed butternut squash

Try this healthy crowd pleaser as a simple supper

Balancing healthy eating with tastebud-satisfying flavour is never easy but this cheerfully simple recipe should tick both boxes. A hearty winter veg hollowed out and crammed with a summery Mediterranean filling, it’s great as a main course, for starters or even as leftovers for tomorrow’s lunch.

Preparation time:

5 minutes

Cooking time:

35 minutes

Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 2 butternut squashes (500g each)
  • 2 tbsps groundnut oil
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 280g sundried tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 4 tbsps pumpkin seeds
  • 200g feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tbsps chopped basil
  • 520g fine green beans

Method:

Step 1: Cut the squashes in half lengthways and scoop out the seeds. Roast for 20-25 minutes until slightly browned.

Step 2: Heat the oil in a frying pan, add onions and sweat until soft (4-5 minutes). Add garlic and cook for 5 minutes over a low heat.

Step 3: Mix the sundried tomatoes, pumpkin seeds, crumbled feta, basil and cooked onions together in a bowl. Remove the squashes from the oven and scoop out most of the flesh so there is space for the filling. Fill the squashes with the stuffing mixture and return to the oven for 10 minutes.

Step 4: Steam the green beans over a pan of boiling water for 4-5 minutes until tender. Remove the squash from the oven and serve immediately with the beans.
