Butternut Squash Puree



Introduction

This is one of my favorite recipes from ThePioneerWoman.com This is one of my favorite recipes from ThePioneerWoman.com
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 butternut squash, 1/4 cup of butter (salted or unsalted will do! You can probably use margarine, but it wouldn't be quite as delicious.), 2-4 tablespoons maple syrup (use the real stuff, adjust as per your sweetness requirements), plus a dash of salt.

    Especially delicious in the fall and winter!

Directions

Makes about 8 servings, depending on the size of your butternut squash. This stuff is heaven in a bowl, though, so it might be more like 5 or 6...

1. Slice the butternut squash in half, scrape out the seeds with a spoon.
2. Place both halves face down on a baking sheet and pour water in pan (enough to cover the edge of the squash).
3. Bake in a 350* oven for 30 minutes, or until squash is fork tender. Remove from the oven.
4. Cut butter into pieces and put in mixing bowl. Use a spoon to scrape the flesh of the squash from the skin and place over the butter.
5. Add maple syrup and a dash of salt.
6. Puree in blender until creamy and delicious! (Alternately, you can mash with a potato masher for a more "rustic" look.)

  • This was really good! I did have to add some fat free milk to it becuse it didn't get smooth. I used in in a butternut squash and spinach lasagna! It didn't get five stars only because id would not get smooth until I added the milk - 6/21/11
