  • Squash own pot cooking

    One of my favourite ways to eat squash, cooked in their own pot. I cooked this in the microwave but roasting in the oven will do too, just takes a lot longer.

    First select your squash, these are scrummy Amber Cup (thanks Ruud)

    Cut the top off the squash and level the base if needed to keep it upright. Scoop out the seeds.

    Use pretty much what you like, but this time I've gone for shallot, garlic, tomatoes and a rasher of bacon. The juice from the squash and tomatoes mingles together to make a delish stock.

    Add all the ingredients to the squash pot, I also added a knob of butter, ground salt and pepper to the mix. Put the lid on and add a little water or stock if needed and cook on full power in the microwave until tender or pop in the oven till cooked through.

    Ohhh - I'm salivating - drooling in fact. What a lovely idea for a quick, lovely meal. Don't they look a lovely golden colour inside?

            Sadly no more Amber cups left, boo, I'll have to wait until the autumn for more. Thanks, using round courgette is a good idea, plus I'll get to eat some all the sooner! I've penciled in to grow Golden Nugget and Gill's Golden Pippin, for hopefully tasty one pot cookers

              Could also work well with the c maxima Zapallito squashes.

            Oooh yes it may indeed, though I don't remember the flesh being very thick?
