Feta & Butternut Squash Dip

This feta & butternut squash dip is a great dip for using up leftover roasted squash or pumpkin. Pair it with some oatcakes or crudites. It works really well as an accompaniment to grilled meat and fish too.

Jennifer’s Tip

To save time peeling and chopping, simply roast a halved butternut squash or two and scoop out the cooked flesh.
