Stuffed Squash

Here is another great and simple idea for a main meal that is high in protein, fibre and nutrients. You will need 1 small squash, 200gr low fat cottage cheese, 1 egg, salt pepper and choice of veggies for salad. I used samphire that I just lightly turned on heat for a few moments in olive oil.

Take a squash top off, take the seeds out, place in the oven for 35 minutes, take out and fork out the middle, which you then mix with cottage cheese, salt pepper and then put it back in the squash… break an egg on top and then put into oven for another 10 minutes… take out of the oven and on to the plate, garnish, add salad and enjoy. It is such a simple and fun meal. Squashes are now in season, make sure you give it a try. They are low in cholesterol, sodium and saturated fat. They are high in fibre and an array of nutrients such as Vitamin A, Thiamin, Niacin, Phosphorus and Copper, , Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Magnesium, Potassium and Manganese, so great for bone health, immunity, weight management and a lot more.
