1.Add 2 cups of cubed butternut squash to a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Drizzle 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil and use your hands to coat the cubes. Roast at 180 degrees C for 30-40 minutes, flipping halfway through.
2. While your butternut squash is roasting: fill a medium pot with water and add in your raw cashews. Place over high heat and bring water to a boil. Once boiling, immediately turn off the heat; let the cashews sit for 30-45 minutes in the warm water, then drain.
3. Once the cashews have finished soaking you’ll be ready to make the dip: add drained cashews, cubed roasted butternut squash, garlic, nutritional yeast, coconut milk, jalapeño, cumin, cumin seeds, paprika, Chili powder, salt, and black pepper to a high powered blender. Blend on high until a sauce comes together. Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary.
4. Transfer dip to a large shallow bowl and garnish with the tomatoes, spring onions, jalapeño slices and cilantro. Drizzle with the sweet chilli sauce and a few lime slices. Serve with the Trigz chips and enjoy!!
