This was amaaaazing! I only used 125g ground meat (but didn't reduce the amount of anything else). I used http://www.food.com/recipe/baharat-spice-blend-224763 for the spice blend and omitted the pine nuts as I didn't have any on hand. I also added a touch of cumin and a finely chopped fresh mint leaf to the yogurt sauce. My butternut was exactly 600g and took 35 mins to roast - perfect timing for the rice I made along side - dinner on the table in 45 min from start to finish. So incredibly good that I'm doing it all over again tomorrow haha! Thanks for sharing this fantastic recipe - so simple, but so different from the regular. Yum.
This was even better than we could imagine! I had a 520g peice of butternut that I halved and roasted (not a pretty thing to stuff but tasted just fine. We both loved the mix of the sweet pumpkin, savoury meat mix and tat yoghurt sauce-it worked so well. This is simple beyond belief and will get made again soon.
