Spicy Grated Butternut Squash Wrap

I LOVE butternut squash. The texture is amazing, the flavor is mild and nutty and it’s a very versatile vegetable. One of my favorite ways of using it is to simply roast it with some herbs, but every now and then I also like to grate it and use it in wraps or even risotto.

Before finding this recipe last year I hadn’t really thought of grating butternut squash, but these days I make different adaptions of the recipe below all the time. It’s both easy, quick and fresh, basically everything you could wish for in a weekend recipe!

  1. a knob of non-dairy margarine
  2. 1 garlic clove, crushed
  3. 1 shallot, sliced
  4. ½ butternut squash, grated
  5. 1/2 tsp paprika
  6. 1/2 tsp cumin
  7. black pepper, to taste
  8. chipotle spice, to taste
  9. 1/4 cup vegetable stock
  10. a pinch of salt, to taste
To serve
  1. 5 tortilla bread (or flatbread)
  2. non-dairy crème fraiche (or cream cheese)
  3. 2 lime
  4. 2 avocados
  5. 1 handful fresh thyme
  6. 1 handful fresh coriander
  7. mixed salad (arugula, spinach and mâche are great options)
  8. 1 tomato, chopped
  9. 1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
  10. 1 red onion, chopped
  1. Heat a frying pan to medium-heat. Melt the margarine and sauté the shallot and garlic until they begin to soften. Add spices (except the salt) and fry for 2-3 minutes until fragrant.
  2. Add the shredded butternut squash and and fry for another minute or so. Then pour in the vegetable stock, stir and cook for about 10 minutes until the butternut squash is soft but not mushy. Add more water if needed. Salt to taste (the amount of salt needed depends on how much is in the vegetable stock).
  3. In the meantime, prepare the fresh vegetables. Place a layer of mixed sallad on the tortilla breads. When the butternut squash mixture is ready, divide it on top of the salad, squeeze some lime juice and serve with chopped tomatoes, red onion, bell pepper and non-dairy crème fraiche or cream cheese.
