2 tbsp margarine non-hydrogenated 28 g
1 pinch nutmeg
2 tbsp gingerroot, grated 26 g

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the squash.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F.
  2. Cut the butternut squash in half lengthwise. Place the 2 halves on a baking sheet, cut side down. Bake about 1 hour, until it can be mushed with a fork.
  3. Let cool down and purée in a food processor. Add the margarine, nutmeg, and grated ginger. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Reheat and serve warm.

Remarks

The purée keeps up to 5 days in the refrigerator or up to 3 months in the freezer.
