Welcome to my dream come true Paleo slow cooked butternut squash recipe.
If there should be a staple to your meals on Paleo it should be this. It is the most delicious way to eat vegetables that you will ever find and will take you about 2 minutes to prepare.
It was actually thanks to Jamie Oliver that I first discovered this gem. We saw it on his Twitter account years ago and thought it sounded too good to be true. I mean could you seriously roast some butternut squash and then just serve it as it is without having to peel or dice the butternut squash.
I am a huge fan of butternut squash but the preparation bores me and often means that I either don’t bother or talk Dominic into chopping it up for me.
But when I saw the idea that a butternut squash is chopped in half, quickly seasoned and then baked I was suddenly in butternut squash heaven. Even better, once you have finished cooking it you can serve it on the dinner table as it is along with your meat and other vegetables. It makes a perfect addition to your Sunday roast instead of roast potatoes and I can guarantee that you will all argue over the last bit just like you do with the roast potatoes.

Chop your butternut squash in half. Rub olive oil over the flesh part and sprinkle with salt, pepper and rub in the garlic puree.
Place in the slow cooker for 2 hours on a high heat for 3.5 hours on a low heat.
Once cooked remove the seeds and serve.
The amazing this about this is that its identical cooking time between the oven and the slow cooker. So if you don’t have a slow cooker or are cooking other things in your oven then you can choose where you cook it. I prefer the slow cooker though as I feel that with the slow cooking ability the flavour is amazing.
For a good snack after cooking it cut it into wedges like how you have melon.
