Lovely Winter Grub

I’ve just discovered this little lump of deliciousness and thought it only right to share it with you.

A Gem Squash (it's quite small)

You’re supposed to use a ‘Rolet’ or Gem Squash, but I reckon any sort of squash would work – you’d just need to change the cooking times.

For a Gem Squash you:

  • Cut off the top
  • Pop it in the microwave for 3 minutes
  • Spoon out the seeds and throw them away
  • Scrape out the flesh, mix in grated cheese and herbs (I just used mixed herbs and black pepper) and stuff the squash skin with the mixture.
  • Either eat it now, or pop it in the oven (topped with a drop or two of oil so it doesn’t dry out) until you’re ready to eat it.

    Nom, nom, nom :o)

I think it tastes like a cross between a sweet potato and a carrot – and is a more flavoursome version of a baked potato.  Nom, nom, nom… :o)
