with lots of garlic and olive oil, which are the ingredients for the Sweet Cloves and Liquid Gold theme at I♥CC this week. We had it for lunch with some bread, to mop up the flavoured olive oil and juices. The perfect recipe for this time of year.

  1. Put the olive oil and butter in a shallow roasting tin and heat gently. Add the wedges of squash and season well. Pull the leaves off the thyme and scatter those on, too, with some seasoning. Turn the wedges over, making sure you get herbs, fat and seasoning all over them.
  2. Put into an oven preheated to 190 °C/375 °F/gas mark 5 and roast for 30-35 minutes, or until tender and slightly caramelized. Baste the squash pieces every so often while they’re cooking and sprinkle the garlic over 15 minutes before the end of cooking time. Serve with some crusty bread and enjoy

    Hallo :-)
    bis jetzt lag mein Butternut noch einfach so im Kühlfach, aber jetzt wird er zubereitet. Ich hatte einfach kein appetitliches und ansprechendes Rezept. Danke für Deine tollen Beiträge und vor allem, für das sehr lecker aussehende Kürbis Rezept, das ist ja mal etwas ganz anderes!

    lg Daniel
