Author:
Serves 4
Ingredients
  • 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
  • low calorie spray
  • fresh chopped coriander
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 200c or 400f (gas mark 6)
  2. Place butternut squash in an oven proof dish, add the paprika and a little salt and black pepper and mix to coat.
  3. Spray with a low calorie spray and place in the oven and roast until tender.
  4. 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).
  5. Mix in some finely chopped fresh coriander into the butternut squash and then add this to the rice and stir to combine.
  6. This is a great side to a variety of dishes.
