Butternut Squash

Butternut Squash is packed with vitamin A, supports eye health, and can reduce your risk of osteoporosis. They can be a little tricky to peel because it contains a sap-like substance that becomes quite slippery when cut. My favorite squash-peeling method is to cut a thin slice off the bottom so it stands flat and place on a cutting board and peel in a downward motion. I usually use a clean kitchen towel to hold the squash because the sap-like substance can also dry into a tough film on your fingers.

Don’t be scared! You don’t have to make your own pasta. You can easily skip making your own and just sandwich the filling between 2 wonton wrappers and seal with a swipe of water.

BUTTERNUT SQUASH WITH CHORIZO-SPICED KALE
This hearty vegetarian dish uses the same seasonings as chorizo. Don’t have any Pimentón de la Vera picante? Don’t worry – it’s just hot smoked paprika. You can substitute with smoked paprika and a pinch of cayenne.
