Butternut squash has such a wonderful natural flavor, that it's great eaten just plain on it's own. This is a very simple (yet very yummy!) butternut squash recipe that allows the natural flavors of the squash to shine through. It's a little bit sweet and a little bit salty. This easy butternut squash recipe is both vegetarian and vegan, and would probably also be tasty using acorn squash.
- 1 medium butternut squash, peeled and chopped
- 3/4 cup vegetable broth
- 2 tsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- rice or other whole grains (optional)
In a large soup or stock pot, combine the butternut squash with all of the other ingredients.
Cover, and bring to a slow simmer. Allow to cook for about 20 minutes or until squash is soft, stirring before serving.
Serve over rice, or another whole grain if desired. This sweet and salty squash is also tasty on its own.
