Sweet Mama Squash


Thank you Twitter People for letting me know this ugly vegetable is Sweet Mama Squash!

Looks like a mis-coloured pumpkin, but tastes like sweet butternut squash!

It was part of my weekly Veg-Box and I had no idea what it was and what to do with it.
And I have to say that is exactly why I love the whole Veg-box idea so much.
I’m getting veg I would NEVER EVER buy when rushing around in the supermarket like a headless chicken.
I would ony end up with broccoli, green beans and carrots. Boring, boring boring and unhelathy as well!
To have a healthy diet you need a large variety of vegetables in order to get all the different nutrients the body needs.

I found a super quick and easy recipe for my Sweet Mama here. and I was really surprised how sweet and tasty this bad Mama was.

Sweet Mama Squash cut, sliced (1cm thick) and peeled
Onions 1 or 2
Garlic 1 or 2 cloves
Raw coconut oil
Salt & pepper

Pre heat the oven to 220
Slice the onion thinly and place in on a baking dish.
Place the sweet mama squash on top.
Bake in until soft, about 30min.
Add finly sliced garlic, thyme, and salt & pepper and let it bake for another 10 minutes.

  1. Hi Lisa; we tried this sweet mama recipe today. It took quite a long time for us to chop and peel our squash, but got there in the end. It was absolutely delicious cooked your way and was a great accompaniment with sausages. Thank you. X
