Butternut Squash and Cherry Tomato Crumble

Even though Christmas is over, the cold winter nights certainly aren’t, but don’t worry, we have the perfect winter-warmer dish for those cosy evenings in. This Butternut Squash and Cherry Tomato Crumble is a unique and flavourful way to enjoy the bounty of fall vegetables. It’s a comforting dish that can stand alone as a vegetarian main course or serve as a flavourful side dish to complement your meal.


For the Filling:

  • 1 small butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and diced
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Crumble Topping:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 190°C.
  2. Prepare the Filling: In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add chopped onions and garlic, sautéing until softened. Add diced butternut squash to the skillet and cook for about 5-7 minutes until it starts to soften. Stir in halved cherry tomatoes, dried thyme, salt, and pepper. Cook for an additional 3-5 minutes, allowing the flavours to meld. Remove from heat.
  3. Make the Crumble Topping: In a bowl, combine rolled oats, all-purpose flour, grated Parmesan cheese, chopped walnuts, cold cubed butter, salt, and pepper. Use your fingers to rub the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Assemble and Bake: Transfer the butternut squash and cherry tomato mixture to a baking dish. Sprinkle the crumble topping evenly over the filling.
  5. Bake in the Oven: Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the crumble topping is golden brown, and the filling is bubbling.
  6. Serve: Allow the butternut squash and cherry tomato crumble to cool slightly before serving.
