Goes well with bread.

Butternut Squash and Veggies

No time or desire to cook today, so it had to be quick:

  • slices of butternut squash, baked in the oven for about 20 minutes (turn over after 10 minutes)
  • some deep frozen veggies (carots, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, corn), defrosted in the microwave oven

Very delicious, I think, I’ll put butternut squash on my top ten list of favourite veggies.

Also a very filling meal for only 250 kcalories.
