Use this as an accompaniment to any meal (chicken, fish, pork, tofu). A green vegetable like broccoli, green beans or spring cabbage goes really nicely with butternut squash.

Serves 2


  • 300g butternut squash, peeled and cubed (this will be about 600 to 650g unpeeled)
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper


  1. Put the squash and garlic into a saucepan, cover with water and bring to the boil.
  2. Cook for 10 minutes and drain well.
  3. Add the mayonnaise and the olive oil.
  4. Season well and mash until smooth.
