Morrocan Butternut

Morrocan Butternut ~ Spicy, semi-sweet Butternut Squash is a delicious side to any meal #Morrocan #ButternutSquash #SideDish

This is my favorite way of dishing up butternut - The MORROCAN way!

We had a few rainy days, which is fine by me because last week and the weekend we had temperatures up into the mid 30's. Whenever it is raining, I am in the mood for spicy, yet not too spicy, food - especially any thing with cinnamon.

I kept the dogs inside, ... the 3 {older} Maltese poodles, Jason, Freddy and Teddy, they behave inside - just huddled together on their blanket, BUT oh, Rex is a little terror!

Even though Chichi and Rex each have their own little tent, he always wants the one she is laying in, look at the next little collage - he is trying his utmost to get her out of there.  {FYI - I love watching my doggies play and most of the day, that is actually exactly what I do ! }

Morrocan Butternut

1 Large Onion, chopped into large chunks
2 TB Olive Oil
500g Butternut, chopped into small cubes  {or Pumpkin}
Salt & Freshly Ground Black Pepper, to taste
1/4 cup Sugar
1 t Ground Cinnamon
2 TB Seedless Raisins

1.) Saute the Onion in the Olive Oil until soft - add the Butternut and stir-fry for 5 minutes over low heat.
2.) Add the Salt & Black Pepper, Sugar, Cinnamon and Raisins to the Butternut - stir through.
3.) Cover the pot with the lid and let simmer over low heat {10 - 15 minutes} until cooked.
