Notes

The black mustard seeds and smoked paprika give this dip a fiery kick and compliment the sweetness of the butternut squash perfectly. 

We used it as a side dish, alongside roast chicken, grains and salad but works great alone with crackers or bread. 

The pine nuts give it some crunch and texture, but feel free to swap to any  of your favourite seeds or nuts.
