These all sound so delicious!  I ended up substituting it in place of sweet potatoes for a black bean and sweet potatoe saute sort of thing, and it was great!  I definately will have to try the other recipes as well!

My easy peasy coconut/butternut soup is:

-sautee  some onions until brown
-then cover with vegetable consome
-then add the coconut milk, the butternut squash
- add salt pepper curry powder and a little coriander if you like (you can add any spice you want really, curry and coriander is my favorite)

bring to boil etc (what you usually do in order to cook a soup)

and Voila! easy!

It is great in burritos and enchiladas.   I like to toss it with lime-juice, ancho chili powder and maple syrup before roasting it.  Then combine with corn and beans (the ideal) and throw it in a tortilla.

I've tried to make soup by using the butternut squash, and it was interesting, except I didn't know how to peel the skin off as quickly as I can at first: http://windyscorner.info/windy/?cat=6.

Otherwise as other people comment - roasting it would be another good idea.  Smiley

chop in half, little bit of butter, salt and pepper and roast slowly in the oven at 300-350..... it melts in your mouth

blackened squash soup is one of my favorites:

toss peeled, cubed squash with a chopped onion in melt-y butter and a cajun spice mix.  Roast until caramelized.  Throw into a pot with a leftover baked potato and vegetable broth to cover.  Boil.  Puree and add milk or cream to taste.  serve hot with crusty bread.

(the original recipe isn't veg - it calls for bacon to be roasted in with the squash.  And for chicken broth.  Both ways are delicious!)

Roasting squash to the point where it starts to caramelise, is my absolute favourite way of preparing squash. Especially when it's super sweet. It's my ultimate comfort food^_^

If you like Thai stri fry, here is another way to cook the butternut: http://www.thaitable.com/Thai/recipes/Stir_fried_Pumpkin.htm

That's what I do, too. And then I serve it with wild rice -  sometimes I fill the cavity with the wild rice and put it back into the oven for about 5 minutes. Yummmm.

I made up a butternut squash and coconut pie awhile ago, and it was so good!   Here's the recipe:


I also like to bake them with apples, cinnamon, honey, walnuts, and nutmeg.
