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.
Fall is my favorite food time of the year. I absolutely love the warm, comforting flavors of winter squash and root vegetables. Butternut squash is often on our dinner table because its mild sweetness and creamy texture work well with many dishes.
This cassoulet, based off a traditional sausage-and-bean stew from France, features my beloved butternut squash. The squash provides loads of nutrients: beta-carotene, vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium and fiber to name a few. Along with the beans, the chicken sausage packs a protein (and flavor) punch without going overboard on fat.
This one’s not for a speedy weeknight meal, but you can get it on the table in an hour or so.
