So today I received a beautiful package from http://www.inkwellprojects.com/
my gorgeous friend custom made me a collection of beautiful plates to display my goodies on! I was so excited I immediately decided I needed to go create something photo worthy.. Hope I did her proud.  Big big thank you ❤

So here’s what I went with :

Stuffed Butternut squash. It’s a bit of a classic.. everyone has thier own version I know. But this one’s mine.

Recipe :
1 Small Butternut
Oil of choice
1 Cup Quinoa
1 Red Pepper
1tbs chopped Ginger
1tbs chopped Garlic
1 Chilli (optional)
2 Spring Onions
I Lime zest and juice
1/2 Tsp Sesame oil (optional )
Handful of Mint
Salt

Preheat the oven to 400°.
Start by chopping the squash in half (be careful ) and giving it a drizzle of oil. I used Avacado. Give a sprinkle of salt and pop in the oven for 40min- 1hr.

Meanwhile Cook the Quinoa according to packet instructions. Chop the Pepper ,Garlic , Ginger, Chilli and Onions.

Once the Butternut is cooked through and the Quinoa is ready, heat some oil in a pan and add all your chopped bits and saute for a few minutes , being careful not to let the Garlic burn. Once they have the kitchen smelling yummy add the Quinoa to combine everything. At this point add your Lime juice and zest and Sesame oil if using.

Spoon as much of this as you want over the Butternut and top with your fresh (mint chopped or torn ).
