Crispy Butternut Slices


Butternut is such a robust and proud thing. It sits there and it says loud and clear” I am a vegetable!”  We all do a million and ten things with it, but my favourite way with this pumpkin is to just slice it in thin slices ( something between n slither and a chunk) with skin and all.

Into a baking tray with the lot and sprinkle with pumkin spice ( and if you can’t find pumkin spice, any spice will do, even a spicy chilli mix).

Drizzle with olive oil and bake at 180 C until crispy at the edges (45 min or more).

Side dish or main dish or snack, any old which way and it always looks and tastes good. And what’s more, it is ORANGE, and I love it!

  1. I love butternut squash, too! I loved your idea of even using a chile pepper spice on it. Why didn’t I think of that? That’s why I love reading blogs. You find out so many great things! Thank you for sharing!
