Its not just what you put on your skin: Lunch

Here is a quick and simple recipe that is great for lunchboxes ! I make this a lot and portion it out for work lunches. It is so convenient!

Butternut Squash, Rocket and Goats-cheese Tart!

You will need:

  • One roll of ready rolled puff pastry
  • One packet of Rocket
  • One half of a Butternut Squash
  • Goats cheese
  • Cinnamon
  • Olive oil
  • Salt

First thing is first, make sure the pastry is defrosted. Then pre-heat the oven at 180 fan assisted.

Cut the butternut squash into equal sized cubes. Place on a baking tray and toss with the oil, salt and cinnamon. Pop it in the oven for approximately 25-30 mins, or until they are looking something like this:

Bake it in the oven for approximately 20-25 minutes


If you find it rises too much, pierce a couple of holes in the pastry and then lay your knife flat against the pastry, helping to release some air.

Place your rocket on top of the pastry. Then add the butternut squash and the goats-cheese.

Then you are done. It is lovely warm or cold. Portion it out and put in containers ready for the week ahead. Great for work or school packed lunches !


Enjoy 🙂

I would love to know if you make it, and what you think !
