Butternut squash

Butternut squash is a delicious winter vegetable that has many uses in cooking. It’s also a good source of fiber, vitamin C, potassium, and other nutrients.

Here are five ways to cook it.
Roasting butternut squash is one of my favorite ways to prepare it. You can roast it whole, cut into wedges, or slice it up and use it as a side dish.

Roast it with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic.
If you’re looking for a healthy alternative to mashed potatoes, try roasting butternut squash instead. It has a mild taste and adds a nice texture to any meal.

Bake it with onions, spices, and other ingredients.
Roasted butternut squash is delicious when paired with savory toppings like bacon, garlic, and herbs. You can also use it as a side dish by adding some butter, salt, pepper, and cinnamon.

Steam it with herbs and vegetables.
If you prefer to cook butternut squash using the microwave, try steaming it with fresh herbs and vegetables. This method will allow you to enjoy the flavors of both the squash and the herbs without having to roast them separately. Simply place the squash cut side down in a large bowl and cover with water. Add a few sprigs of thyme, rosemary, sage, or other herbs, and then cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Microwave on high for 15 minutes. Remove the plastic wrap and let sit until cool enough to handle. Peel off the skin and slice into cubes.

Add it to soups or stews.
You can also use this vegetable as a substitute for pumpkin pie filling. Just bake it in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until tender. Let cool completely before adding to a pie crust.
