I'm always looking for different ways to use our winter squashes. Combining the squash with the sweet potato makes it a little lighter with a lovely nutty flavour.

Freeze any leftovers to add to mashed potatoes, thicken soups or stocks or just to use as mash.

Mise en place

  • Preheat the oven to 190° C (375° F - gas 5)


  1. You can make this ahead of time and reheat in the microwave.
  2. The squash will take about 25 minutes and the sweet potato about 30 to 45 minutes depending upon the size.
  3. Halve the sweet potato and place on a rack over a baking tray and roast in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until soft.
  4. Halve the squash and scoop the seeds out and discard them. Roast the squash for 25 minutes. The seeds can be used for Pepitas if you wish.
  5. When both are cool enough to handle, scoop the flesh out and mix with the harissa paste if using, mash well and season to taste.
  6. Serve hot
