I had the most delicious pureed butternut squash the other evening. Being pureed was much better than just mashed. I added various spices, salt, pepper and 1 tbsp. olive oil to mine – lovely, subtle flavor.
Take 1/2 pound of butternut squash and cook in boiling water for 10 minutes.
Place in food processor and drizzle in 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil and 1/4 tsp. each of ground nutmeg, cinnamon and garlic salt.
