Can I use a different type of squash for this recipe?

Certainly! If you’re looking to switch things up, you can experiment with alternative squash varieties like acorn or delicata. While butternut squash offers a sweet and nutty flavor, these alternatives may introduce unique tastes and textures to the dish. Keep in mind that cooking times might vary slightly, so adjust accordingly.

What can I substitute for dried chili flakes if I want a milder flavor?

For a milder flavor profile, consider substituting dried chili flakes with paprika or cayenne pepper in this recipe. These alternatives provide a gentle heat while allowing you to control the spiciness. Smoked paprika adds a delightful smokiness, while cayenne pepper offers a bit more kick. Adjust the quantity according to your taste preferences, ensuring the perfect balance of warmth without overpowering the sweet notes of the butternut squash.

How to store roasted butternut squash with feta

To store roasted butternut squash with feta, allow it to cool to room temperature before transferring it to an airtight container. Refrigerate promptly, and it can be stored for up to 2-3 days.

Can I prepare the feta dip ahead of time?

Mix the feta cheese, yogurt, chopped basil, and lemon zest in advance, storing it in an airtight container in the fridge. This allows the flavors to meld, enhancing the taste. When ready to serve, simply take it out, let it come to room temperature for a bit, and then spread it onto a plate before topping it with freshly roasted butternut squash. The feta dip can last for 2-3 days in the fridge.
