Comfy Belly: Roasted Butternut Squash

Looking for a great pumpkin purée recipe? Here’s a quick, simple way to roast butternut squash, which is, in my humble opinion, the best homemade squash for all your pumpkin purée needs.

Comfy Belly: Roasted Butternut Squash

When I’m in need of some pumpkin purée for a pie, bread, or other recipe I turn to roasted butternut squash for it’s reliably sweet taste and smooth texture. This recipe is a “fast” roast, but if you have time try a slightly lower temperature which will yield an even tastier, melt-in-your-mouth squash. You’ll be tempted to grab a spoon and eat right out of the skin, and I proudly confess to doing so.

To slow down this roast, take the oven temperature down to 350°F (175°C, or gas mark 4) and roast for about an hour. Your roasting time will vary a bit based on the size of the squash. It’s done when you can easily slide a fork in the center of the squash.

    I leave the seeds in . . . and then blend the whole lot – flesh, seeds and skin. You end up with a really delicious nutty flavour. You do end up with tiny pieces of skin that don’t totally puree, but you won’t be disappointed by the taste!!
