Having a Halloween themed dinner? This is the perfect fun (& healthy) side to make to accompany your haunted meal! Best of all, it’s super easy!
You will need:
- About 6-7 Long Purple Potatoes (Mine are Friedas from Sprouts)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 Long Necked Butternut Squash – really look for a firm long one as you will be cutting the long neck that has no seeds.
- Olive oil to bake squash in.
- Herb salts
How to Prepare
Peel potatoes and boil in salted water until soft. Mash with butter and milk and season with salt and pepper to taste. I used rosemary salts in my version and it complements the slightly sweet taste of the purple potatoes.
Slice the butternut squash long neck into 1/2 inch thick cuts. Leave skin on the outside. Put in a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil and salt. Bake at 375 for 35 minutes.
Serve a baked ‘moon’ over a dollop of purple ‘sky’ potatoes.
I drizzled balsamic reduction sauce over mine to make ‘bats’ and ‘spooky sky’, but you could leave it plain if you wanted to. Be creative!
