Food Fun - Butternut Squash

I love cooking and I'm always on the lookout for new cookbooks. Yes, I have loads of them but I just really enjoying experimenting with food. Being on a gluten free diet can sometimes be a challenge. The other day I ordered a book by Canadian chef Bonnie Stern called "Friday Night Dinners".

Friday Night Dinners

All the recipes look delicious, many are gluten free and they're not the type that take hours to prepare. After all, with children, I don't have a lot of time on our hands.

So the first recipe I tried was "butternut ribbons". You basically slice up a butternut squash into ribbons about 1/4" wide, lay them on a pan in a single layer and sprinker with some olive oil, kosher salt and a little fresh, chopped rosemary. You then cook them in a 400F oven for 25 - 30 mins until they're slightly browned.

They were really tasty and incredibly easy to make!

  1. YUm! I love squash but I can't get my husband to eat it. It is so funny, he got me started eating more veggies, but there are a lot of things I don't make anymore because he wont eat them. I love cooking, too, but I really love the fun of experimenting.
