My love for butternut squash is a newfound discovery. I thought I hated butternut squash. And maybe I did years ago, but this just goes to show you the importance of trying foods again. Palettes do change! It’s always a win to add another vegetable in the rotation.
You know how they look similar to sweet potatoes? I figured they tasted the same. (Terrible judgement there…please forgive my ignorance). By the way, I retried sweet potatoes again this year, and found ways to enjoy them, BUT I love butternut squash more!
How to Make That GOLDEN GOODNESS
I wish I could take credit for this incredibly quick, easy, and mouthwatering recipe. But, I can’t. My wonderful cook of a mother created this. Thank you, Mom!
Easy Puréed Butternut Squash – Girlinhealing.com
- 1 small butternut squash (or as I use, a pre-cut 20 oz. package)
- 2 TBS grass-fed +/or organic butter
- 2 TBS real maple syrup
- Salt to taste
- Place chopped butternut squash in a saucepan with a pinch of salt and add water, almost fully submerging it.
- Turn burner on high and bring to a boil.
- Take off heat when butternut squash has begun to soften and drain water.
- Add squash to a food processor with the butter, maple syrup, and a pinch more of salt (to taste).
- Purée until smooth. Done!
My go-to grass-fed butter is Kerrygold. It has a beautiful rich yellow color, so you know it’s the real deal!
