15 Butternut Squash Recipes (1)

What’s not to love about a vegetable that has butter and nut in its name? It practically screams “cozy!”

This hourglass autumnal squash isbasically the love child of the sweet potato and the pumpkin. When roasted, its flesh becomes tender and sweet, the sugars in it yielding a naturalcaramelization. It’s vegetable candy, and we’ll be obsessing over it all season long.

One of the things I love most about butternut squash is the versatility of it — it’s awesome in pasta (as a healthy, but still incredibly tasty riff on mac & cheese), but also translates beautifully into a silky, sweet pie. And don’t even get me started on the soup! We’ve got an exciting roundup today, of 15 of our favorite recipes starring butternut squash. Withrecipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert dishes,this veggie covers all bases — from a healthy breakfast hash, to a carbonara that will knock your socks off, we truly can’t get enough.

Still intimidated by peeling and seeding a butternut squash? It’s not as painstaking as you think. Check out Ali’s tutorial here, and get cooking!

    SO many of these look so good, I don’t even know where to start. I LOVE butternut squash, and I can’t get enough of it. I am making a soup tonight, and then I can start on these recipes. Thanks for this round up, I am pinning now!

    OMG, I love these pictures and recipes! And butternut squash :).
    I think my favorite is the roasted butternut squash galette which will definitely be tried out in my kitchen this season! And of course the spiced butternut squash cupcake looks pretty super delicious, too!
    greetings, Sarah

    I can’t get enough butternut squash during this time of year! It is probably my favorite ingredient, and is so versatile! Thanks so much for including my tartine, Ali! :)

    Comfort food for me is a banana sandwich with almond butter. So tasty but so easy to go overboard on the almond butter!

    I have 14 new squash recipes! Awesome list :) I say “14” because I just made the squash + black bean tacos and few weeks ago and they were absolutely delicious. A fall/winter staple for sure.

    Thanks for the post – never cooked or used butternut squash before but have eaten it a long time ago. It’s one vegetable I want to start learning how to cook – they’ve popped up all over the market now it’s Autumn. Will be trying some of these recipes – thanks once again :)

    I want to make all of these (except for the blue cheese part in the Mac N cheese dish).
    I’m the only one in the family that eats the squashes. Thanks for putting these out there. Pinned it!
