This is a Perfect Side Dish to almost any meal. Creamy and Delicious, yet so simple to whip up, this Creamy Butternut will have you asking for more.
We South Africans love our Good Food. We are so fortunate to have an array of World Class Resturants in our country. Now if you go out to a regular restuarant anwhere in South Africa, I’m talking of the seafood, steak houses or even portuguese ‘franchise’ stores, the one common veggie side dish they all seem to have on their menu, is Butternut and Spinach.
This is so because these vegetarian options have for years been well received by South Africans and you can never go wrong with those 2 veggie options. Afterall, with an abundance of Butternut and Spinach available all year round in South Africa, it has become almost Staple ingredients and are prepared in many households in different ways.
Now there are times when we love to have resturant style foods in the comfort of our homes, and I love to whip up my versions of these popular dishes. I have already shared how to make Creamed Spinach , and today I share with you this simple side dish of Creamy Butternut.
Happy Cooking Lovelies
