BUTTERNUT SQUASH BIRYANI20 Nov 2020, Posted by FYS Recipes in
Seasonal cooking allows life to be simple. Often encouraging us to be inventive or reintroducing the forgotten or overlooked. Cooking by season makes it clear what you have to work with, it can also be cheap if you are fortunate to grow your own and inspires to shop local.
So as the nights draw in we are celebrating the exciting and mysterious world of squash. They come in a myriad of shapes, sizes and colours and really come in to their own for seasonal soups, stews and, of course, carving. Not only does their warm and comforting taste instantly conjure up autumnal days but they are packed full of a special type of soluble fibre called pectins, which is a powerful prebiotic, plus those orange colours bring an array of carotenoids to pimp up your phytonutrient intake.
