Butternut squash dip:
Preheat a barbecue grill to medium. Wrap the squash and garlic tightly in foil and cook for around 20 minutes. Once tender, allow to cool in the foil to loosen skins. Peel skins off and discard. Place squash and garlic in a food processor and blitz to a smooth paste. Add a squeeze of lemon and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Place the diced avocado in a bowl. Add the lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil. Mix gently with a fork to combine, until a chunky paste. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Be prepared and make the Beetroot and Butternut dips the day before. Make the Avocado dip just before serving and place the stone in the dip to keep it from browning.
