Butternut Squash, Courgette, and Chickpea Hash
400gm (half of a medium butternut squash) Butternut Squash
3 Courgettes (cut into small cubes)
1 can chickpeas (400gm)
400ml Pasta Sauce
½ Onion (diced)
3 cloves Garlic (peeled and diced)
½ tsp Paprika
¼ tsp Chilli Flakes
1½ tsp Salt
½ tsp Black Pepper
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
Fresh Coriander (small handful – chopped)
1. Roast the butternut squash with the skin on for 30 minutes at 170°C. Once roasted, remove from oven. When it has cooled, the skin should be easy to remove, cut into cubes. Set aside.
2. Pour the olive oil into a pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Once the olive oil is hot enough, add in the diced onion. Sweat it out for about 3 minutes before adding in the diced garlic. Fry until aromatic, be careful not to burn the garlic.
3. Add in the butternut squash and courgettes. Fry evenly in the pan. I like to try to get the vegetables in a flat layer on the pan so that they can crisp up and colour instead of steaming up in a pile. Fry for about 8 minutes until vegetables are cooked and nicely coloured.
4. Next add in the pasta sauce, chickpeas and seasoning. Stir through until nicely combined and fry for another 3-4 minutes. Just before switching off the heat, add in the chopped fresh coriander and stir through. Remove from heat and serve.
