Roasted Butternut Squash with Quinoa Vegetable Stuffing is a highly nutritious, extremely filling lunch or supper dish. You can roast the Butternut Squash ahead of time, make the stuffing, assemble and pop back in the oven to warm through.
Butternut Squash is rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants. The beautiful orange colour of the butternut squash delivers an abundance of powerhouse nutrients known as carotenoids. Rich in vitamin A in the form of beta carotene, its seeds are also rich in protein, healthy fats and zinc. Butternut Squash contains a good amount of fibre, potassium and magnesium.

I roasted the Butternut Squash in Pukka Organic Ghee on recommendation and was not disappointed with the results, tasted so very buttery and soft.
The vegetable rich stuffing has added protein from the Quinoa to balance the meal with health giving properties of garlic, paprika and cumin make the dish tasty and nourishing.
