See that funny guy up above? He looks kind of like the start of a balloon animal to me. He’s a butternut squash and I decided I wanted to try one last week because I don’t think I ever have before. Don’t let the mild exterior fool you, inside he’s a bright orangey yellow and packed with fiber. Plus he’s full of nutrients, especially vitamin A, we’re talking 300% your daily value in 1/2 cup of cubed squash. What a nutrition powerhouse! Here’s a quick photo tutorial on how to peel and seed the squash, with a recipe soon to follow.
