Braaied butternut and miso parcels


This makes a nice change from the usual butternut stuffed with spinach and feta. The umami-rich flavour of the miso works so well with the sweetness of the butternut.


2 Butternuts
4 Cloves of garlic
2 Tbs Miso paste
2 Tbs Honey
4 Tbs Extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp Sesame oil
1 Tsp Dried chilli flakes
1 Tbs Toasted sesame seeds
Small bunch fresh coriander


  • Halve and de-pip the butternuts.

  • Mix the garlic, miso, honey, oils and chilli flakes in a bowl and stir to combine.

  • Place each butternut half on a piece of foil and brush liberally with the miso mixture.

  • Wrap the butternuts with foil and place in the coals for 30 – 40 minutes, or until cooked through and soft when pierced with a knife.

  • Carefully remove from the coals, remove the butternut from the foil and serve garnished with sesame seeds and fresh coriander.
