|FOOD|butternut squash 'Caesar' salad


Trying to healthy up our weekday meals a bit so The Hubs is having Ceasar salad quite regularly, I know it sounds a bit weird but I quite like to eat the same meal as him but a veggie form so I came up with this salad and it's absolutely delicious! 

Ingredients (serves 1):
1/2 small butternut squash
Olive oil
1 little gem lettuce
Handful of croutons (make your own with leftover bread!)
1 tbsp pinenuts
Vegetarian Ceasar dressing
Vegetarian Parmesan cheese

Method:
 
1. Peel the butternut squash and cut the top part into thick sticks (cut up the rest and cook for another meal!) drizzle with olive oil and roast for 20-30 minutes.

2. In a dry frying pan gently toast the pinenuts until lightly browned. 

3. Cut up the lettuce and place on a dish,  place the roasted butternut on top, sprinkle with the croutons. Add some Parmesan shavings and drizzle over some Caesar dressing, finally top with pinenuts. 

And enjoy! X

  6. Definitely is a healthy choice, it's funny as my husband always says 'I can't believe there's no meat in that' whenever we have something full veg :) looks good and will be sure to try it out.
