4
Put the oil in a frying pan and fry the squash on medium heat for 5-6 minutes. Sprinkle with the salt.

Tips & Note

Butternut squash is not as sweet as sweet potato or pumpkin so you'll need to add some sweetness. If you don't have golden syrup, make up a sauce with sugar dissolved in hot water.
