Butternut Squash Puree

Butternut Squash Puree


  • 1 Butternut Squash 3 pounds approximately
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Ginger peeled and chopped
  • 1 or 2 Garlic Cloves
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


Preheat Oven to 375°

  • With a sharp knife, prick the squash in several places to allow air to escape while it cooks (otherwise, it could burst!).  Place the squash on a baking dish and roast for about 90 minutes, until the squash is soft when you push on it. Let cool for 15 minutes (but no more) so it's easier to handle, then peel, and remove seeds.  Cut the roasted squash into chunks, or scoop meat out with a spoon.  Add to the food processor with the maple syrup, ginger, garlic and salt and pepper.
  • Process in the food processor until very smooth.  It could take 3 to 4 minutes to get a very smooth texture.
