      Top 3 Butternut Squash Facts

      1. The high levels of potassium found in butternut squash are able to help keep your blood pressure levels in check.
      2. Carrots are not the only vegetable to help you see in the dark, butternut squash is also high in Vitamin A.
      3. They belong to the Cucurbitaceae family of field pumpkins; probably originated in the Central American region back in the 1930’s.



      1. Preheat the oven at 200c. Then, on a medium heat in a large pan, add a glug of olive oil followed by the onions, 2 tsp of paprika, seasoning and the butternut squash pieces (add the chilli seeds for more heat). Combine well and cook for 5 minutes.

      4. While you stir the vegetables, add the chicken stock. Lid on and leave on a medium heat for 25 minutes, or until soft.

      3. While the veggies cooking, add the drained chickpeas, paprika and black pepper to a tray, followed by the bacon strips. Bang in the oven for 15 minutes or until crispy.

      5. Once soft, season well, add the chipotle sauce and blitz using a food processor or handstick. Add more water to meet your desired consistency.

      6. Serve hot and garnish with chilli, 2 bacon strips, roasted chickpeas and a dash of single cream!
