    What 1 Other has said

    • My family and I really enjoyed this dish - to the extent that everyone wanted 3rds! I did add quite a bit more coconut cream than the recipe for a very creamy version. I also found that topping and tailing the butternut and pricking all round and microwaving for 3 minutes on high made the skin very easy to remove for preparing it prior to steaming. Will definitely be adding to my favourite mid-week recipes!
