Baked Butternut Squash
We love this as a simple side, or to use in butternut squash soup and as a substitute for pumpkin puree.
- 1 butternut squash whole
- butter, or olive oil
- Season as desired, see instructions below.
Heat oven to 400.
Cut squash in half lengthwise and scrape out seeds.
Place cut sides down in pan.
Pour about 1 inch of water in pan.
Cook for 1 hour or until very tender when pierced with a fork. Cooking time will vary depending on the size of the squash.
Remove from pan, flip squash over and smear with butter or drizzle with olive oil.
Seasoning Ideas: Sprinkle with Hope, Nurture, or Amore RealTaste seasoning; or RealTaste Peace seasoning with salt and a drizzle of maple syrup.
