Well today is another glorious day where I am. When the sun is out and it starts to feel warmer, I love eating salads (a salad for me on a hot summer’s day feels refreshing). Today I had some sliced lettuce with chopped red peppers, the left over tuna from Friday and some cannellini beans.
Despite having couscous for lunch on Friday, I had it for dinner as well on the same day, but stuffed the remainder of it in a butternut squash. I had a go at making stuffed squash recently, stating that I would try it differently next time.
When I scooped out the seeds, I also took out more of the squash so that I had more room to put filling in.
There wasn’t much squash, but I cooked it until soft then mashed it; this was then mixed into the couscous. I also added some mixed salad beans to the couscous, to give it a bit more substance.
As previously, I placed the butternut squash in a pan of boiling water to soften. I then put the couscous filling into the squash, and cooked for about 30 minutes at gas mark 5.
I definitely experienced more taste this time, by incorporating the flesh of the butternut squash into the filling. It also meant that the stuffed squash didn’t feel like so much of a task to eat, as the squash was quite thick last time.
Happy reading and blogging,
