Place in a bowl, cover and wait for the butternut squash to cook.
Cut open the squash and slice into cubes. Cut the ends of, slice in half length ways, discard or seeds.
Add coconut oil to pan and fry the garlic lightly for two minutes.
Add the butternut squash and sauce and simmer for around 15 minutes on the lowest heat. Be careful the mixture doesn’t dry out.
