  1. Heat 15ml olive oil in a large deep pot and sauté the mushrooms for about 5 minutes or until soft, then remove from the pot and set aside.

  3. Add the butternut and stir to coat well then allow to fry for about 5 minutes.

  4. Add all the Robertsons spices to the pot and fry for 30 seconds, stirring continuously to release the flavour and aroma.
