Butternut Squash (from Ann)

Butternut Squash (from Ann)

Cut in half lengthwise, remove seeds and strings. Brush with butter, salt and pepper to taste. Bake, cut side up, in a moderate (180°C?) oven until tender. I like to stuff the cavity with rice or bulgur pilaf when the squash are almost tender and finish baking til done and stuffing is hot.

You can make a soup with plain baked squash, chicken or veg broth, grated fresh ginger, and a swirl of cream added at the end (don't boil after adding cream). Verna, who isn't too fond of soup, even admitted this wasn't bad.

I once had charcoal-grilled butternut slices at a "southwestern" restaurant. I think they were parboiled and brushed with some spicy marinade before finishing off on the grill. Yummy!
