Creamy butternut squash mash

Simplicity at its best. Roasted butternut squash with just a little bit of oil, salt and pepper. It gives you this intensely delicious and super creamy (without cream being added!) mash, so pleasing. Perfect to serve with red meat and potatoes.

You can also have fun with this recipe and add spices but honestly... it's so good like that! It doesn't even need spices.
