- 1 cup of rice, uncooked (or you can use quinoa or brown rice, but you may need to adjust water ratio)
- 400g of butternut squash, cubed
- tablespoon of paprika
- salt and black pepper

- Spray with a olive oil spray and place in the oven and roast until tender (approx 30 mins)
- In the meantime add the rice to 2 cups of boiling hot water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered with a lid until water has been absorbed. Turn off heat, but keep lid on to allow the steam to continue to cook rice (approx 5-10mins).
- Mix in some finely chopped fresh coriander into the butternut squash and then add this to the rice and stir to combine.
