Roasted Butternut Squash with Camembert

Gluten Free, Low Carb | October 23, 2011 | By

Pretty as a picture.

This looks and tastes delicious!   The sweetness of the butternut squash and the creamy Camembert goes so well with the garlic bringing together these two for a perfect combination.  It looks impressive but is so easy to make.   The whole dish, including the skin can be munched too.   Kinda like a baked potato when you wolfed down the crispy skin.   Wow your friends at dinner/supper/Thanksgiving/any other holiday/Come Dine With Me/family gathering/trying to impress the in-laws etc…!

INGREDIENTS

2 small butternut squashes, halved and seeds removed

2 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced

1 tspn freshly grated nutmeg

Fresh thyme

1 tbsp olive oil

2 x 150g (5oz) Camembert cheeses, halved horizontally

10 cherry tomatoes on the vine

METHOD

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/400F degrees.
