  • 1 large butternut squash, halved lengthwise, flesh scored in a criss-cross pattern
  • 1 tsp olive oil, plus extra for brushing
  • 1 bunch spring onions, sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 300g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 slices crusty bread, or sourdough, cut into cubes
  • 50ml coconut milk
  • 15g coriander leaves
  • 1 tub coconut yoghurt, to serve (optional)


Step 1

Preheat oven to 190°C/170°C fan/gas 5. Brush the flesh of the squash with oil and season. Place skin-side up on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 35-40 mins, or until tender. Set aside to cool.

Step 2

When the squash is cool enough to handle, scoop out most of the flesh and cut into rough cubes – be sure to keep the skins intact, so leave about 1.5cm flesh attached.

Step 3

Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, add the spring onions and cook for a few mins to soften. Add the garlic and chilli flakes and toss through the squash. Add the tomatoes, bread and coconut milk and cook over medium heat for 5 mins, or until the tomatoes soften and the skins start to split. Season to taste, then spoon the mixture back into the squash skins, sprinkle with coriander and finish with a drizzle of coconut yoghurt, if you like.
