Pureed Butternut Squash

February 26th, 2011 · 3 Comments · Pureed Foods

Continuation of my pureed foods series

I was playing around in the kitchen today and believe it or not, was going to make a pureed butternut squash cupcake.  However, this was so delicious by itself I think its going to replace mashed potatoes at my house.  And it’s SIMPLE!

You’ll need:

  • 1 Butternut squash
  • 1 pat butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Peel your butternut squash with a potato peeler.  Cut off the ends and cut in half.  Spoon out the seeds and discard.  Cut it in to 1/8ths lengthwise and then cube it like you would to make mashed potatos.

Steam the squash by itself.  If you don’t have a steamer, I make a ghetto one by using a 4 quart pan with some water – Put the squash in to a stainless steel colander that you use to strain pasta – and covering with a lid and putting the stove on medium-medium/high heat until the squash is soft.

Put in to your food processor with the butter and ginger.  Puree until smooth.  Mmmm. Mmmm. Creamy goodness.  This stuff is awesome!

    Hi there, No there was no need to add salt or sugar. It was very sweet and tasty on its own. :) Feel free to link away. Thanks for stopping by

    Have you tried freezing and reheating? I have elderly client who now has to eat pureed food. This has thrown me because she’s also gluten-intolerent, so I have to be careful with thickeners etc.
