Butternut squash, sage and crème fraîche mash

Butternut squash, sage and crème fraîche mash

Sweet and buttery squash paired with fragrant sage and crème fraîche for a bit of zing.


Preparation method

  1. Melt the butter in a wide, heavy-based, lidded pan over a low heat. When the butter is foaming, add the sage and fry one minute.

  2. Add the butternut squash pieces and chilli flakes. Cover the pan with a lid and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the squash is tender, stirring occasionally.

  3. Lightly mash the squash, using a fork, then stir in the parmesan and crème fraîche until well combined. Season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
