New Ways to Cook Butternut Squash
Lasagna, chili, donuts—how to be more creative with your butternut squash.
Butternut is the most ubiquitous of winter squashes, with good reason. It lends itself to side dishes, soups, entrées and even desserts, thanks to its natural sweetness. Pick up a few at a time come fall: The vegetable keeps for a month or longer, and its sweetness increases over time. Peeled and cubed butternut squash can be stored in the refrigerator for up to five days—though it probably won’t last that long with these recipes, which go far beyond ho-hum purées.
