cooking in season is always best, and my friends at Cooking Light have a great produce guide to help you choose the right items! fall is a perfect time for squash (and apples! you know a post is coming on my absolutely favorite food soon….but we digress), so I decided to specifically focus on butternut squash for this post because it’s a favorite of mine. its really got a mild, slightly buttery flavor that I find absolutely delish. and it’s very healthy too. Here are 5 ways for preparing butternut squash (you must check out the butternut squash noodles – who would have thunk?) – and the best part, all recipes qualify for #meatlessmonday! let me know which ones you try.
