Roasted Butternut Squash with Garlic
A yummy comforting treat. Roasting the squash and the garlic brings out the sweet flavour in them.
||Pre-heat the oven on a medium heat.
||Chop the squash in half, then peel and remove all the pulp and pips.
||Cut the squash in to bite size chunks and place in a baking tray, at least 1" deep.
||Add the garlic still in the skins, spreading them out (they steam inside and go all soft).
||Cut the butter into little chunks, distribute evenly and add the black pepper.
||Put in the oven and cook till soft all the way through, the longer it cooks, the sweeter it is, turning it all over every so often, so the melted butter covers all the chunks and it all cooks evenly.
||The garlic does not strongly flavor the squash but the cloves can be taken out of their skins once cooked and eaten with the squash.
||Adding some streaky bacon can work as well.
