This squash is a winter squash so it has a hard skin. Butternut is such a great squash, because compared to other winter squash varieties, the skins are thin so the squash can easily be sliced for stir-fries. Butternut is especially delicious roasted and fabulous for a wild rice salad or a salad with beets and walnuts. An easy “go to” side that works for almost all of our winter squash varieties is by either roasting or grilling them. This recipe for it roasted with coconut and chiles, is easy and delicious, but you may only need olive oil, garlic salt and pepper for your seasoning because the squash is so flavorful.
