Butternut Gratin

A light, quick and tasty vegetarian meal or side dish! I LOVE butternut, I can honestly have it every day of the week!

The last time I made this, I had it as a side at one of our ‘solo’ braais.  Usually, on a Sunday, myself and Hubby just like to spend time at home, just the two of us. More often than not, we will braai – a solo braai for just the two of us. He’s actually not a huge fan of veggies, so this is my ideal opportunity to play around with some veggie-dishes-for-one!

Butternut Gratin

Serves 1

100g roasted butternut (pop some butternut slices, with a drizzle of olive oil, in the oven on 200C for about 45 minutes) I usually roast a batch, then I can use it to make butternut soup, or add it to salads, etc.

30g lite/low-fat Feta, crumbed

150ml fat free milk

½ teaspoon dried Rosemary

Salt and Black Pepper

1 slice Ultima low Kj Bread (blitzed to crumbs) or 30g store-brought breadcrumbs.

Place butternut in ovenproof dish. Pour milk over, season with salt, black pepper and rosemary. Crumb feta and breadcrumbs over it.

Bake for 25 minutes in preheated oven (180C) and voila!
