101 Recipes for Butternut Squash

Updated on October 7, 2014

101 Different Ways to Prepare Butternut Squash

I love butternut squash. It tastes like autumn. Pure autumn. We ate a lot of butternut squash in our house growing up. I liked it, but very quickly I would hit the point where I didn't want another bite of it.

Why did I get sick of it? Because my mother only prepared it one way: roasted in the oven with a bit of cinnamon and butter. That's just how it was done. No variation.

So now, I try to mix things up. I love to try different ways to use butternut squash. Here are 101 ways that you can use that butternut squash you picked up at the farm stand.

      Thanks for this lens, one of my favorite foods and it was nice to see some Quinoa recipes too. Quinoa is considered a protein by vegetarians and is absolutely wonderful. I'm sure the nutty flavor of the Quinoa complements the Squash. Will have to try it. Thanks.
