Servings 12 Baby Portions

Ingredients

  

  • 1 Butternut Squash
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • ¼ Teaspoon Dried Nutmeg Powder
  • ¼ Teaspoon Dried Cinnamon Powder
  • 4 Sprigs Fresh Thyme
  • 1 Tablepsoon Maple Syrup
  • ¼ Cup Rapeseed Oil

Instructions

 

  • Pre-heat oven to 180ºC.
  • Use a potato peeler to peel the skin from the butternut squash. I find this is the easiest and quickest way to peel them.
  • Slice the butter squash into 1 inches slices and then cut the centre part to remove the seeds. On the solid slices that had no seeds I used a Christmas tree cookie cutter on them to cut out some seasonal shapes.
  • When you are finished add all the butternut squash to a bowl and set aside.All all the remaining ingredients to a blender and blender until it becomes a smooth marinate.
  • Pour over the butternut squash and massage each piece to make sure they are completely covered.
  • Bake for around 25minutes or until it is just soft but still firm enough for little hands to hold.
  • Serve as a side dish.

Notes

Can be frozen. Use a piece of parchment paper between each slice when freezing to prevent sticking. Defrost in a fridge and reheat in either oven or microwave.
