15 Butternut Squash Recipes | #recipes

What’s not to love about a vegetable that has butter and nut in its name? It practically screams “cozy!”

This hourglass autumnal squash is basically the love child of the sweet potato and the pumpkin. When roasted, its flesh becomes tender and sweet, the sugars in it yielding a natural caramelization. It’s vegetable candy, and we’ll be obsessing over it all season long.

One of the things I love most about butternut squash is the versatility of it — it’s awesome in pasta (as a healthy, but still incredibly tasty riff on mac & cheese), but also translates beautifully into a silky, sweet pie. And don’t even get me started on the soup! We’ve got an exciting roundup today, of 15 of our favorite recipes starring butternut squash. With recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert dishes, this veggie covers all bases — from a healthy breakfast hash, to a carbonara that will knock your socks off, we truly can’t get enough.

Still intimidated by peeling and seeding a butternut squash? It’s not as painstaking as you think. Check out Ali’s tutorial here, and get cooking!

  11. Thanks for the post – never cooked or used butternut squash before but have eaten it a long time ago. It’s one vegetable I want to start learning how to cook – they’ve popped up all over the market now it’s Autumn. Will be trying some of these recipes – thanks once again :)
