The recipe combinations are endless, but this particular one is a favourite….


Pre-heat oven to 200°C/ gas mark 6 or combi steam 200°C with 60 percent steam.

Spread butternut squash and courgettes out onto an oven tray, brush with olive oil and season with cinnamon, salt and pepper, and bake for about 20 minutes or until soft.

Place it in a saucepan with 100ml water and cook for about 10 minutes or until soft, or place in the steam oven and cook for 10 minutes on 100 percent steam. Drain if cooking on the hob.
