Rich and creamy butternut squash recipes that create good comfort foods that are good for you is exactly what Mother Nature ordered this fall and winter season.  Especially since this past year, I’ve been teaching powerful workshops on How to Live a Life of Abundance. These are concepts to help you live a life that is abundant in joy, peace, love, health, money and all that truly helps to make your life fulfilling. Well, we’ve been practicing some of these abundance concepts at our farm and because of this, we’ve experience true abundance of all of the produce the farm team grew this year!

As I harvested hundreds and hundreds of pounds of beautiful butternut squash last week, I began to wonder what I could do with all of the glorious squash that will be remaining once our customers have stocked their root cellars (or garages) for winter.

So, I pulled out some of my favorite tried and true recipes as well as added a new one to my repertoire. The creamy texture and rich flavor of butternut squash not only makes any dish tasty and satisfying, butternut squash also adds incredible nutrients such as beta carotene (which helps your body fight cancer), many B vitamins, and has a similar mineral content to pumpkin such as iron, zinc, copper, calcium, potassium and phosphorus. As you know, I love foods that taste good and are good for you too! And, I recently learned from a client of mine that the squash seeds can be eaten the same as the hulless pumpkin seeds, called Pepitas, and they provide healthy fats and protein too. Almost miraculously, the very next week I stumbled upon a recipe from Martha Stewart, where she included the butternut squash seeds, pulp and flesh in a wonderful pasta dish (see below).

So come to SanaView Farms this weekend to stock up on fresh picked organic butternut squash to please your palate.

RECIPES:

Butternut Squash Soup with Fried Sage Leaves
This is my all-time favorite way to have butternut squash.
This soup is so loved by my entire family that we serve it as the first course for our Thanksgiving dinner. Now this is one good reason to give thanks!

Butternut Squash Risotto with Spinach
Oh wow, creamy risotto with creamy butternut squash and savory spinach – a complete meal in one bowl. See the recipe here!

Pasta with Butternut Squash, Squash Seeds and Sage (Adapted from Martha Stewart Living)  I love to take recipes that I find online or in a recipe book and modify it to be healthier but equally as delicious. This is exactly what I did to this amazing dish that uses the pulp and seeds as well as the butternut squash flesh. If you add greens, again you have a complete meal in one delectable dish.
