Red kuri squash and shallots with honey

The sweet-and-savoury taste goes well with roasted poultry. The oil improves the assimilation of the beta carotene – don’t leave it out!

Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 1 red kuri squash (1kg)
  • 12 shallots
  • 2 table spoons of liquid honey
  • 2 table spoons of olive oil
  • salt, pepper
  • 1 sprig of thyme


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (Th7).
  • Peel the squash and remove the seeds.
  • Cut it in small pieces.
  • Peel the shallots and put them in a basin with the squash.
  • Season with salt and pepper, add thyme, honey and oil, and mix well to coat the vegetables.
  • Put the preparation in an oven dish and let it cook for 35 min., turning it over halfway through.
  • The vegetables should be golden brown and tender. Serve.
