A simple yet tasty way to enjoy butternut squash using only 5 ingredients. The squash is boiled and then briefly stir fried with eggs and garlic so that it soft but not mushy, and lightly seasoned to bring out the flavour.

Although simple, this recipe is actually quite filling and great on a cold winters night! We ate it on its own, but you could pair with rice if you want.
