Spicy butternut squash

Spicy butternut squash

I love butternut squash, but i love even more when there is a spicy component to amp up its sweet flavor! If you like spicy Mexican food, this dish was invented for you. If you don’t, you can leave out half the spicy pepper, take out the seeds and remove the cilantro and this would still be incredibly delicious, just more subtle.

Mung beans are a legume in the same family as lentils and peas. It has many health benefits including a high source of fiber, protein and antioxidants and originated in India. You can often find it in the legume section of your supermarket, but if you can’t you can always use any kind of lentils instead!
