Sweet Basil and Thyme Roasted Butternut

Sweet Basil and Thyme Roasted Butternut

Butternut is right up there on my list of favourite veggies. It is so versatile, it can be prepared in many different ways. It is guaranteed to be a tasty addition to any meal. I played around with some spices and potions and ended up with a delicious roasted butternut dish that my family loved.
You will need:
60ml good quality Balsamic Vinegar
1 tablespoon of treacle sugar
1 stick of butter (100g)
15ml Sweet Basil
15ml Thyme
2 – 3 small butternut, peeled and diced

Place all ingredients except butternut into a small pot and heat (don’t boil) until the sugar and butter have melted. Place butternut into an ovenproof dish and pour contents of pot over butternut. Cover in foil and bake at 160 degrees for about an hour or until soft. Remove the foil and grill till slightly caramelised.
Serve with whatever mains you wish. I grilled rump steak, added a bit of cream to about 60ml of the balsamic juice from the butternut and used that as a sauce for the steak……delish is an understatement!
