Looks good! I cannot get curry leaves here but it looks like it would easy to adapt as the recipe suggests.

Here's a good recipe for beetroot....they always seem to arrive as a glut.

I have just realised this should be in the appetiser section, never mind, I would have this alongside hard-boiled eggs as a main meal. I love hard-boiling the tiny pullets' eggs my youngest are laying now; quails eggs would be great too.  I am a huge fan of beetroot & this expanded dish would look very colourful too, especially if served on a huge family platter.....preferably outside under the vines.....wishful thinking here, at the moment. My vines haven't even started into leaf yet.   Oh we would need lots of winewinewine to go with this dish.  laugh

Would be good except for the cheese and cream.

I have been thinking about buying Hugh's Veg Everyday book - does anyone here own it please?

I'll try that again!

We double posted!  I like your vision of eating it under the vines...

I'll try that again!

Thanks for that.  I thought that it might encourage me to cook for myself since I don't really do that, other than the odd pan of soup.  I tend to live on toast and Marmite or egg or ham.

I'll try that again!

You are missing out on yummy meals! There are different ones and they have a firmer texture and more taste than pumpkins. Butternut is great roasted with onion, garlic, courgettes and tomatoes. Also makes great soup when roasted and herbs added.

I don't like the texture or the sweetness of them.

I'll try that again!

We have butternut mixed with carrots, potato, tomato etc as an oven roasted chopped veg mix- delicious.

 Are we having fun yet? I am!

Here are a couple of useful vegetarian recipes by Yotam Ottolenghi (from The Guardian). Great for this time of the year. I happen to love Butternut squash but I know not everyone does, maybe they will enjoy the potato one.

Not sure whether I like butternut squash or not as I don't seem to be particularly successful with them - I think our season is just a tad too short for them. But I love other winter squashes, just had a Thelma squash roasted for tea tonightcheers
