I made this for the photo using a delicious new breed of squash grown in New Zealand called ‘kuri squash’, but butternut or small dark-skinned pumpkin works equally well. On balmy autumn days this can be served at room temperature, but on chilly days it is best served straight from the oven.


  • 2 small squash or 1 kg(2 lb) pumpkin or butternut cut into <


Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 5. Place squash in a ceramic or foil-lined baking dish. Scatter over garlic, salt and oil. Pour in water, Roast 30 minutes
