How to Roast Squash
Any type of squash or pumpkin works for this technique.
For this demonstration I used Buttercup Squash.
-Pre-heat oven to 350f. Cut squash in half and scoop out the inside with a spoon. Brush the insides with oil, optional, but I like to. Turn squash skin side up in an oven safe dish lined with parchment paper.
-Roast at 350F for about 30-45 minutes. The exact time will vary depending on the size of the squash. The skin will be slightly darker and you should be able to poke a fork quite easily through (see image below.)
The flesh should be very easy to separate from the skin now. Gently scooped it out with a spoon and transfere to a blender. Blend until smooth and enjoy!
Puree'd squash can be added to tons of dishes, some of my favourites: chilli, soups, dips, and burritos.
