Butternut squash is on almost everyone’s Thanksgiving Day menu. It’s great as a side dish or made into a soup. I’ve just completed a video on how to make Butternut Squash Soup which I know you are going to love! It can make it two days in advance and just reheated on Thanksgiving Day.
Butternut Squash is a hearty winter squash, and just like a pumpkin, it is a heavy, dense vegetable with seeds in the bulb part at the bottom.
Surprising, butternut squash works well with a variety of flavors including cinnamon, maple syrup, curry, ginger, coconut and even granny smith apples. Just don’t try adding all of them at the same time!
You might want to consider wearing disposable glove when you’re preparing butternut squash as it will stain your hands orange.
Important Safety Tip:
Do be extra careful when you are puréeing hot soup in the blender. Not only do you need to do it in several small batches but also be sure to open the plug slightly in the cover of the blender to release the steam!!
