    A simple and delicious autumnal recipe from Self Magazine (September 2008). The cumin salt tastes great on any meat or fish, or even on cheese.

      I think this was the first time I've tried this squash, and it was fabulous. I think this might have become my favourite squash recipe. All the spices, the sweetness, everything complemented the squash perfectly. I could not stop eating this dish! Thanks!

      Great recipe! I didn't have any brown sugar so I used regular sugar and mixed 1/4 tsp molasses in with the olive oil. Also not sure that 1 tsp salt is necessary and it could probably do with less. But overall it was great!
