    What's Cooking?'s Note:

    Butternut squash is good for more than soup! I just had a bowl of this creamy deliciousness for my breakfast. Would taste wonderful served as a side with chicken and vegetables, or something spicy. Makes a terrific filling for ravioli, as well. But it's definitely good in a bowl all by itself.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375.
    2. 2
      Cut stem off of squash. Cut squash lengthwise and remove seeds and pulp. Put squash halves face down in a baking dish. Add 1/4 inch of water.
    3. 3
      Bake the squash for 20 minutes with cut side down down, then 20 minutes with cut side up (when you flip them over you can add a little honey and/or cinnamon if you so desire). Bake until a knife can easily enter the flesh but remove from oven before the squash becomes entirely mushy.
    4. 4
      Allow squash to cool enough to handle. Remove peel with paring knife, and cut peeled squash into pieces of approximately 1-2 inches.
    5. 5
      Put pieces in food processor, along with the rest of the ingredients. Puree until smooth.

      Fabulous easy but delicious recipe! I left out the butter and milk, and used maybe 1/4 cup water instead. Making it a great vegan dish. And I used honey instead of sugar. It almost tastes like a dessert.

      I had leftover butternut squash from a soup I'd made last week, but I didn't have enough of the other ingredients to make another batch. This was a great solution! I loved the spices in it, but I wanted it to be a bit more smooth and less thick and starchy (as butternut squash can be), so I added extra milk (probably 1/4 c. instead of 1 T.). Also, I increased the amount of salt to bring out the flavors better. I feel like I could eat this as dessert tonight--especially if I put some crunchy nuts on top--and I just might!
