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!
- 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!
