Pumpkin puree seems to get a lot of the attention but you can make a puree from many different kinds of winter squash and another great one is butternut squash! You make butternut squash puree in the same way that you make pumpkin puree, and it’s super easy! You simply cut the butternut squash in half, remove the seeds and roast in the oven until tender, before pureeing in a food processor. Since butternut squash is thicker than pumpkin, it takes a bit more time to roast, but you also get a lot more puree! You can use butternut squash puree in the same ways as pumpkin puree!
