...what would I do without you? So easy to peel and cut compared to kabocha and most pumpkin, so quick to cook, and so many recipes possible. I can't help buying one every time I see some at the farmers market. It suits so very well all types of dishes, Italian, Japanese etc... So what did I do with last time? Some autumn spread! Enough of eggplants, chickpeas or yogurt speads summer spreads but Yes! for a butternut squash autumn version.
Butternut squash spread
- 1 butternut squash
- salt, pepper, pumpkin spices (cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, clove)
Simply peel the butternut squash and remove the seeds, cut it into large chunks and steam or boil it. Once it is soft, with a fork just mash it. Add a bit of butter if you like. Add salt, pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and clove. Stir well to obtain a purée. That's it!!!! Eat with freshly baked bread or crackers for a killer experience!
