I LOVE the stuff, we have it about 2/3 times a week, but I feel I have got into a bit of a rut with it. Basically, I either - roast it with onions and garlic until soft (delicious) or - make a curry using coconut milk.
I feel I am not giving it the love it deserves so please, inspire me
my aunty did this lovely dish where she halved length ways, roasted and then scooped out the flesh, mixed with herbs, garlic & goats cheese and then put back in the oven to heat through/ brown. She served with a salad and fresh bread.
We are a big fan of the squash as ds1 loves eating "real Raymond" (he is a Mr Bloom fan)
My friend makes an amazing frittata with it. She roasts the squash in half inch cubes with olive oil and tabasco sauce then sticks it in a frying pan with a few handfuls of spinach. When the spinach has just reduced she adds egg, she uses a little bit of double cream which gives an incredible texture. There is garlic and probably some other stuff in too but I can't remember at what stage it goes in). It's incredible! I roast it with peppers, courgette and red onion, and some pumpkin/sunflower seeds then toss through pasta with a bit of pesto.
It makes lovely wedges/chips, I am on WW and BNS can be eaten freely, so I have swapped normal chips for BNS. Basically just toss it in some oil, seasoning, paprika and roast on the highest my oven will go for 20 minutes, then turn it down a bit until they are cooked through and a bit crispy. I have been known to demolish an entire BNS cooked this way and smothered in BBQ sauce
I cut it into bite-sized cubes, roast till tender with allspice and cumin, then toss with hot boiled chickpeas or butter beans, and a lemon-garlic-tahini dressing and chopped flat leaf parsley. Lovely for dinner with some salmon.
