This fall superstar gets hype for making a mean soup. Don’t get me wrong, butternut squash soup is an all-time fave in my house, but there are more ways to dress up this delicious veggie. Here are our top five.

Classic Soup
If you haven’t made a batch this season, get cracking! Dana’s recipe is one of the best I’ve ever had, and it’s only 169 calories per serving.

Puree
Another popular way to prep this squash is by mashing it. If you can’t get it fresh, go for the frozen cooked squash instead. It’ll also save you some prep time.

Stew
This vegetarian stew is a combo of squash, Swiss chard, chickpeas and Parmesan cheese. Make it on a Meatless Monday instead of a traditional meat-and-potatoes stew.

Roasted
Pop halved squash into the oven, sprinkle with brown sugar and a touch of butter and in 25 minutes, your home will be taken over by the delicious smell of fall.

Stuffing
Look no further for a healthy stuffing recipe (they’re not easy to come by). This mouthwatering combo of shiitake mushrooms and butternut squash is packed with antioxidants and energy boosting B-vitamins.
