Quick-cook butternut squash
One of Jamie's favourite cooking hacks is to bake a whole butternut squash in the oven for 1 hour 20 minutes, then use the sweet, soft squash in soups, stews, rice dishes, chillis, salads… The choices are endless. But there's an easier, cheaper way to cook it. Make 5-6 slits in 1 whole butternut squash and simply microwave on high for 12-14 minutes until soft. Then use this super-versatile veg to boost your lunch or dinner.
