Instructions
  1. Peel and chop the butternut squash and place into a microwaveable container with a couple of tablespoons of water. Cover with cling film and cook for 5 minutes until almost cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, chop the onion and crush the garlic. Spray a frying pan with Frylight and fry the garlic and onion for a couple of minutes until tender. Add the rice and combine with the onion and garlic.
  3. Pour in 300mls of water and add the stock pot and nutmeg. Continue to stir occasionally for around 5 minutes until all of the water has been absorbed.
  4. When the butternut squash has finished cooking, add it to the rice and mix. Add another 300mls of water and continue to stir occasionally.
  5. After another 5-6 minutes, when the moisture has all been absorbed, add the final 300mls of water. Stir more frequently now to encourage a creamy consistency – this should take about 5 minutes.
  6. Make sure the rice is cooked to your liking, and serve immediately with a garnish of your choice!
