Roasted Sweet Potato and Butternut Squash with Feta Cheese

Roasted sweet potato and butternut squash with feta cheese

I’ve been making this dish for years and years. In fact, I can’t believe, I have never posted this recipe! This is my ultimate escape dish, whenever I have to cook up a dinner for carnivores, I serve this as a side dish and I have it as main for myself. Just add some grilled tofu or halloumi and it becomes a great weekday dinner as it’s so easy to prepare. The other week, one of my blogging buddies reminded me to start making this again – somehow I’ve forgotten making it all winter! – so thanks for the inspiration The Mad House Of Cats And Babies.

You can vary it as you wish too: add different nuts, some red onion or shallots – it will work well. It’s very healthy and fulfilling: as I said I often have it on its own for dinner. it’s a one pot meal too: just chop up the vegetables and place them in a baking dish, voila, really not much effort. 

You know that I don’t like talking too much nonsense about a recipe to fill the space 🙂 So here’s the recipe: enjoy it!

Recipe Notes

I sometimes also add some red onion slices to it.

Be careful with the salt usage as the feta cheese is quite salty.Roasted sweet potato and butternut squash with feta cheese
