  3. Roll out and line a 15in tart/quich tin first lined with baking paper ( Quick tip scrunch up the baking paper into a ball first to easily line the tray , exact cutting not required.

  5. Beat three eggs into half a pint of milk . Season well with salt and pepper .
  6. Scatter leeks and butternut squash into a pastry case , pour over the eggs and milk and bake for 30 minutes at 175degC.

Next time I might add some walnuts . I love that these recipes come about solely from my vegebox which inspires me on a weekly basis to think …. not exactly outside the box more around the box.

Butternut Squash Stuffed with leeks ,garlic , walnuts, fennel leaves and goats cheese

Roasted Butternut Squash

The leek /butternut combination I know to be good from whole roasted butternut squash in the winter ,

Roast the squash first in the oven at max for 20 mins ( wrap the squah in foil for speedy cooking) then open and and scoop out the flesh mix it with stuffing ingredients ( in this case leeks , garlic walnuts , fennel leaves and goats cheese . Return to oven and roast off for 15 minutes……………….

If you just want to cook butternut squash I like to cut into into chunks and roast with oil and cumin seed as a good accompanying vegetable

    Trying the stuffed squash. Like the idea roasting whole then cutting, however even at 240 0c it’s taking a longer time than the 20mins – so i’ve put it in the microwave for another 15 mins !

    added pumpkin seeds but made the mistake of adding some smoked tofu – my husband refused to eat it .
