I’m new to butternut squash. Prior to this year, I’d look at any gourdy squash and think, “looks like too much work.” Because, honestly, I LOVE cooking, but I don’t love recipes that take hours.
I have things to do. Or maybe I don’t, but I’d like the option.
Well, I learned a few things.
Butternut squash tastes like pumpkin. Who knew?! (P.S. I FUCKING LOVE PUMPKIN.)
It’s really not that much effort. About as much effort as it takes to peel and chop potatoes.
It’s tricky, because it almost tastes like potatoes. Which is amazing because my stomach is like “mmmmmmmmm starch,” but it’s a much healthier alternative.
