My name is Kalyn and I’m a butternut squash addict! I inherited the butternut squash appreciation gene from my Grandma Denny; every fall Grandma would hack apart giant butternut squashes from her garden, scrape out the seeds, and wrap pieces in foil and bake them in the oven. When it was done we’d eat the squash mashed up with lots of butter, salt, and pepper. Now I’m more likely to cut the squash in cubes and roast it with olive oil, but pretty much any way you cook it, I love the savory flavor of butternut squash.
I’m constantly coming up with new ideas for cooking butternut squash, so I’m updating this collection of My Top Ten Butternut Squash Recipes; maybe if you’re at the Farmers Market or grocery store this weekend it will inspire you to pick up some butternut squash. After my picks there are also 10 more drool-inducing butternut squash recipes from other bloggers, so be sure to check those out too. (And if you have more good recipe ideas for butternut, let us know about them in the comments.)
If you’re not that experienced at cooking Butternut Squash you might want to ready my post about How to Peel and Cut Up a Butternut Squash before you tackle one for the first time. Some stores sell squash cubes already prepped, but I think freshly cut squash has more flavor. You can definitely use the pre-cut ones for soup though!
This Roasted Butternut Squash with Lemon, Thyme, and Parmesan is definitely a wow! Use even more cheese if you’d like!
I love middle eastern flavors, and this Roasted Butternut Squash Wedges with Tahini-Yogurt Sauce, Sumac, and Aleppo Pepper is something I’d always enjoy!
This Autumn Harvest Soup with Butternut Squash and Kale is a meatless soup recipe that even carnivores will love!
Roasted Butternut Squash with Rosemary and Balsamic Vinegar has been one of the most popular butternut squash recipes ever posted on this blog!
This Foil-Wrapped and Grilled (or Baked) Butternut Squash with Sage was something we couldn’t stop eating when we made the recipe again to take new photos!
Lots of butternut squash soups have Southwestern flavors, and this Spicy Vegetarian Butternut Squash Soup with Black Beans, Red Peppers, and Cilantro has some of my favorite soup ingredients! (Use thinly sliced green onion if you’re a cilantro-avoider.)
Roasted Butternut Squash with Moroccan Spices is loaded with flavor, and this post also has 10 More Ideas for Roasted Vegetables.
Oh my, this is a VERY old photo for Roasted Butternut Squash with Rosemary, Pecans, and Gorgonzola Cheese, but this recipe is so amazing I had to include it. Don’t let the photo stop you from try it if you like those ingredients!
And this is another old photo for Slow Cooker Thai-Inspired Butternut Squash and Peanut Soup with Red Bell Pepper, Lime, and Cilantro, but this is an amazing soup I’ve made many, many times.
