New Recipe: Stuffed Butternut

This recipe is a must try! YUM-O! Its not super healthy but it is super tasty, and for a cold winters eve – it warms the tummy.

1. Take a butternut and cut it length ways in half. Scoop our the seeds and brush with a bit of oil. Place halves in a roasting pan with a bit of water and bake at 200C for 45min or until soft.
