Now, how easy was that!

...and what a tasty way to use up a previous night's left overs.


If you don't have left overs, just steam half a fresh squash. Firstly skin and de-seed the fruit, wash and then cut into chunks.

Add just a little water to the saucepan and steam.

Add whatever herbs are handy. I used spring onions because they were left over garnish from an earlier meal.

If you don't have cream, use milk.
