My Favorite Uses for Butternut Squash

 

Posted by Jennifer (the RD) on November 30, 2012

I just got my weekly box of organic fruits and vegetables.  I see that it’s time for me to start cooking more butternut squash.  Yum!  Here are some ways I like to prepare it:

  • Cut up and roasted (with olive oil, garlic salt, and pepper);  also roasts well with herbs such as thyme, rosemary, etc.
  • Butternut squash soup – a classic (it’s actually my sister that makes this for us and it is always good)
  • Roasted with other winter squash and cooled, then mixed in with a salad – MY FAVORITE USE
  • Sauteed squash mixed into hot pastas
  • Mixed into chili (my sister makes this for us too)
