Butternut squash risotto is perfect for dinner AND to box up for lunch too

Healthy and delish.

There's nothing like a handy dish that you can cook in one big pot and serve up for both dinner and lunch. A dish that'll easily see you right through the week AND is suitable for vegetarians.

This recipe for roasted butternut squash is literally one of my ultimate faves and perfect for a dinner party or for your lunch box to see you right through the week.

Is it easy to make?

As I'm no chef or nowhere near one, I look for dishes that are easy and nutritious and I can safely say this one ticks all the boxes. It takes about an hour to make and it's seriously simple, especially thanks to this handy recipe from BBC Good Food.
