Hello my friends ,
its time for another easy vegan recipe now. I am loving this vegan blogging challenge , as it has inspired me to “think” in recipes every day.
When you go vegan you let food take over your life every now and again ,but in most cases you realize how simple and easy is to eat a variety of fruits, vegetables , nuts and seeds, herbs and spices. The real super foods are not the ones, that you buy in a packet , that have been on an transatlantic trip , but the ones, that grow in your own back garden. I buy my vegetables from an organic farm only 4 miles away. I trust that every vegetable brings immense nutriments to our table. I can not begin to describe my gratitude for this.
So this evening I am sharing a very easy vegan recipe of butternut squash chips .Butternut squash is a very shy fruit.It can sit in the fruit bowl for ages until one evening you notice it and once you peel that pale skin you are left with this amazingly bright orange beauty.
Butternut squash has some amazing health benefits. It provides significant amounts of potassium, and vitamin B6.It also contains folate,has more vitamin A than that in pumpkin. It also contains adequate levels of minerals like iron, zinc, copper, calcium, potassium, and phosphorus.Butternut squash seeds are a good source of dietary fiber and mono-unsaturated fatty acids.In addition, they are rich in protein, minerals, and numerous health-benefiting vitamins.
With all that said here is a quick recipe on how you can enjoy
Butternut Squash Chips
Here is what you need
- 1 butternut squash (peeled and thinly chopped)
- 5 cloves of garlic (crushed)
- salt and pepper
- some olive oil
All you do is chop the butternut squash and place it in the baking tray and season with salt and pepper . Then in a bowl mix the crushed garlic , the thyme and the olive oil. Mix well and pour over the squash. Mix well and bake it in the oven for about 20-30 minutes on a 180 C , until the edges get a nice darker colour .
I also baked the seeds, which are very tasty and they added an extra crunch to my dinner.
This evening I felt inspired to make the presentation a bit more special.Above you have butternut squash chips served on a bed of rice and raw spinach and lettuce with roasted seeds and hemp oil. Looks amazing and it tastes just as good.
Hope you enjoy this recipe. Please share your thoughts with me in the comments box below,
Lots of love
