The only way you should cook butternut squash

Yeah, we know, that by saying that this recipe is: “THE ONLY WAY YOU SHOULD COOK BUTTERNUT SQUASH” we kind of accepted a challenge. We don’t mind that. Please send your recipes to be featured. We are totally ok with that. And, by the way, when we said it, we weren’t completely true… This is how you will probably cook pumpkin and kabucha too.

Let’s get this party started. First of all, make sure that the butternut squash you are using is really fresh. Well, it would be cool if all the ingredients are fresh 😉
