Butternut squash & apple bake

Sweetness for dinner?

I have always had a sweet-tooth I think. At least as far back as I can remember. But it does not haunt me anymore because I add sweetness into my meals by adding sweet vegetables instead of going for dessert. Right now butternut squash and apples are in season so why not make a side-dish with both.


  • 4 cups cubed butternut
  • 1 cup cubed apple
  • 1 leek
  • 1/2 tbsp crushed red peppercorn
  • 1 tsp orange peel
  • large dash of sea-salt
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil
Serves 4-6


Chop your different ingredients into cubes and mix everything in a baking dish.

Put it in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for 55-65 min. depending on how baked you like it.

If you use a cooking oil for higher temperatures you can go to 425 degrees for 45-55 minutes.
