I roasted a butternut squash. I can make soup, but was wondering if anyone has any delicious recipes they might share with me? Just feel like something a little different. Thanks!

Me too! The old site used to have a butternut squash pasta recipe, where you just toss the pasta in the freshly roasted butternut and cloves of garlic and it is insanely yummy.

This recipe from The Kitchn is not vegan but if you sub a plant milk for the dairy it makes a nice vegan butternut lasagna.

I'm making a mix of the two - tossing pasta with butternut, mushrooms and lacinato and sprinkling with nooch.

I made this the other day, and it was heaven: http://www.theppk.com/2010/11/butternut-rancheros/

Good Good Things is doing winter squash for her MoFo Blog, so I expect to be exploring my squishy squashy gourd love all October.

oh wow! Thank you both! I LOVE the idea of the butternut lasagna--but I think I will take your idea (Tofulish) and make it with GF pasta...or quinoa...

Thanks again!!

If anyone has any oven-free recipes I would love them. Stupid broken oven! I want roasted butternut :(

You can steam butternut squash and pretty much use it just like roasted.

Idea: I drizzle roasted (or steamed) squash with either peanut or tahini sauce. It makes a quick meal, if you have leftover squash. For the sauce (which I use as a salad dressing too), I use peanut butter, grated ginger, grated garlic, fresh lemon or lime juice, ume plum vinegar, and then thin with water to desired consistency. If you don't use ume, which is very salty, add tamari or salt. And I often add a splash of some really good balsamic vinegar too, or some crushed red pepper flakes. The sauce will thicken up over time, so for later use you may need to add water or other liquid.

I want to try Faith from the Kitch'n's sweet potato tacos with coconut cilantro sauce just using butternut instead. http://www.thekitchn.com/recipe-miso-ma ... ons-177523

The butternut squash jamba from Appetite for Reduction is really good! And you just throw raw squash into the pot, no roasting.

ooh, squash... just... eat it, in everything, all of the time.
seriously, though, i would use it like pumpkin, so like breads, cookies, muffins, oatmeal.
or for savory meals, squash goes well with curry, maybe cauliflower, peas, chickpeas...

http://www.jsonline.com/features/food/29241964.html - this stew is awesome. I recommend adding some cinnamon, and maybe some hot sauce or cayenne if you like things hot.

i love this thread. i have a butternut squash and i was thinking of modifying this ppk recipe:
http://www.theppk.com/2007/10/chili-pum ... kin-seeds/

or veganizing this recipe: http://www.marthastewart.com/275653/but ... de#/263607

i'm in a risotto kind of mood. i made my first risotto (pesto w/ roasted zucchini) and now it's all i want. any advice from veterans of the butternut squash risotto?

I used half a big one this week to make a cake. It's the pumpkin cupcake recipe from VCTOTW, but with roasted squash instead and also roasted hazelnuts--baked in a sheet pan. Tastes like fall!

oven-freers- you can microwave it: slice in half, put it face down, add about 1cm of water and cover the container. it's usually about 7min for the ones i do. you don't get the same roasty flavor but the cooked, mashed squash works well for pretty much any application that calls for pumpkin if you're baking.

I make a pasta dish with roasted butternut pumpkin (why do we call it pumpkin & Americans call it squash??), roasted garlic, caramelised onion & walnuts. I like it with penne because it's a really thick, chunky sauce.

I made a butternut squash based chipotle cheese sauce tonight to eat on my chickpea chips....it was really good. I still have squash left, so I will decide what to do this week. I like the idea of those pumpkin cupcakes...maybe a spice cake or carrot cake.

Thanks for all the ideas! :)
