Main Ingredients

1 medium butternut squash cut into four large quarters* with seeds and goop removed

1 tablespoon butter, ghee, coconut milk, or coconut oil

1 tablespoon apple butter

1/2 teaspoon salt

zest and juice of one lemon or half an orange

1/8 teaspoon fresh black pepper


1Preheat oven to 400. Roast butternut squash chunks for 30-40 minutes or until fork tender.

2Toss squash (skin and all=vitamins) and remaining ingredients into your food processor or Vitamix. Puree until it reaches your desired smoothness. I like mine velvety, so I puree it for a while. Feel free to taste it at this point and add more salt, pepper, or citrus juice to suit your fancy.

Additional Notes

*If you want to use precut squash, fresh or frozen, just boil or steam the squash until it is fork tender. Then continue with the same steps from there.
