Recipe: Stuffed butternut squash

Lately I've been getting so many requests for a recipe of my stuffed butternut squash dish, so I decided to write it down for all of you to enjoy! It's such a lovely warming dish, filled with flavours. Just simply mouth watering!

This recipe is enough for two servings.


1 butternut squash
1 bell pepper
1 zucchini
Fresh goat cheese (about 100gr)
Parmesan cheese (about 10/20gr)
A small handful of pine nuts
1 tbsp dried rosemary
1 tbsp dried thyme
1 tbsp dried oregano
Some salt/ground pepper
Olive oil
Balsamic vinegar

Preheat the oven to 220 degrees celcius.

Start of by finely slicing the bell pepper and zucchini. Be sure you don't slice them too thick, but you can't really do much harm to this dish. Afterwards place the sliced ingredients in an oven dish and sprinkle it with some olive oil/herbs/balsamic vinegar.

If you happen to have it lying around, please feel free to replace the dried herbs with fresh ones!

Chop of the top of the squash. Be sure to leave the bottom intact, this will come in handy later on! :) Slice it in half (a sturdy knife can be a necessity) and scoop out the seeds. Carve the flesh, place it in an oven dish and sprinkle it with some olive oil and herbs.

Place both trays in the preheated oven. It will take about 30/40 minutes until the squash is softened and the vegetables are oven roasted. Really thick squashes can take a bit longer before they turn soft (you can gently stick a knife in it to check it's consistency)

We're getting there! Gently fill the squash with the grilled vegetables, cover it with some lumps of goat cheese and sprinkle it with some parmesan cheese and pine nuts. Place it back into the oven until the cheese turns a bit golden.
