The butternut squash is a winter squash that is very versatile in the ways it can be cooked! It makes a great sweet side dish, is delicious in stews (watch for an upcoming recipe!), or used as the main ingredient in butternut squash soup! Although it is very healthy and delicious, it can be intimidating to know how to prepare it. I found a simple way to cut and peel the squash on Cooking Light's website, and I wanted to pass the good information along!
If anyone is unfamiliar, this is what a butternut squash looks like. My grocery store carries the winter squash in the produce section, near the potatoes and onions. They are priced per pound, so I typically look for a medium-sized one.
Next, using a vegetable peeler, start peeling away the skin until you can only see the bright orange part of the squash.
