Butternut Squash Sauce





On Saturday I posted this picture on Instagram

And the caption read "Just made this EPIC butternut squash sauce". Which led to many requests for the recipe.

I have to be 100% honest, I wasn't really paying attention to the measurements so these are going to be a roundabout idea of how much I used. I will make this again and pay more attention to how much of what I use but for now that is not the case.


Butternut Squash Sauce

2 cups peeled, chopped butternut squash [I buy it already cut and peeled to make it easier]
1/4 cup milk of choice. Preferably heavy cream but I used half & half because it was what was on hand. Almond milk would work too.
1T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Seasonings:
1/2 T Perfect Pinch Savory
1/2 T Perfect Pinch Garlic and Herbs
Pinch of Sea Salt

Directions

Place butternut sqush in a pot and bring to a boil until soft
When the squash is soft, remove from heat and drain water.

Place all ingredients in a blender and puree.
Serve over your dish of choice!

I used gnocchi but this would be great over chicken, in lasgana or spaghetti.
The possibilities are endless.

  4. It's actually very complicated in this busy life to listen news on Television, so I only use world wide web for that purpose, and obtain the newest news.

    Have a look at my page - roasted coffee beans
