Stuffed Butternut

Servings 4


  • 1 medium butternut pumpkin
  • Olive oil and coconut oil for cooking
  • Salt & pepper
  • 3 tbs fresh sage chopped
  • 2.5 cups chopped mushrooms any type you like
  • Fresh parsley optional
  • 1 red onion diced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Big handful baby spinach or rocket


  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Chop both ends off your pumpkin. Slice lengthways, then in half again so you have 4 chunks about the same size, scoop out the seeds. Drizzle with olive oil and salt and roast for 50-60 mins until cooked.
  2. Heat some coconut oil in a large frying pan over a low-med heat. Add onion & garlic and cook until onion is translucent. Add mushrooms, sage, salt & pepper and cook until mushrooms are cooked through. Add the rocket or spinach and cook until wilted. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Once the pumpkin is cooked, remove it from the oven, scoop out a little of the pieces that didn’t have seeds to make a whole similar to the ones you removed the seeds from. Stuff with mushroom mixture and serve. This would be fantastic with some goats cheese on top too.
