Sweet Potato & Squash Sharing Platter

Ingredients:

  • 1 x medium Butternut Squash
  • 2 x medium Sweet Potato
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt + Pepper
  • Herbs/spices of choice
  • Walnut Basil Pesto (see recipe below)
  • Cashew Queso Mexican Cheese Sauce (see recipe below)
  • Roasted Cherry Tomatoes
  • Toasted Pumpkin Seeds
  • Turmeric & Ginger Superkraut

Method:

  1. Slice your Squash and Sweet Potato into wedges and place in a large bowl.
  2. Drizzle with olive oil and mix with your hands to coat.
  3. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and seasonings of your choice. Mix with a spoon to coat.
  4. Place the wedges on to baking trays - do not overlap. Leave space between each wedge - this ensures that they will become nice and crispy.
