Butternut Squash & Beetroot Simple Bake

I love root veggies and I love experimenting with them.
One of my favourite is beetroot.
And because I had some in the fridge the other day I decided to improvise.
I combined it with butternut squash (another favourite), feta cheese and butter. Yummy…

I used a silicone terrine mould to bake it in.
Honestly, it was delicious.
Another proof that the simpler the food is, the more delicious it is.:-)
We had it last night and it’s all gone now.
Serve it with lots of yogurt!
Here’s what you need for this simple veggie goodness.


  • 400g butternut squash, pureed
  • 1 beetroot (around 200g), grated
