2 tbsp butter, unsalted 28 g
1 pinch nutmeg
2 tbsp gingerroot, grated 26 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g

Before you start

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


  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 butter, nutmeg, and grated ginger. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Reheat and serve warm.


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

Love this recipe. So easy to make. I just freeze any leftover squash for future use and season what I need for the meal at hand. Really yummy flavours.

I added cooked sweet potato just to see what it tasted like and i loved it! I also recomend adding carrots in the mix too, for peple who do not usually eat vegtables. (=

Love the addition of fresh ginger in this recipe. Added cinnamon to it instead of nutmeg, since I didn't have any, and it was good.
