Butternut Squash Cream

We’ve already seen how to make Pumpkin Spice Cream (yum!). Now, we’ll look at something different but just as flavourful!


First, you need to chop up the butternut squash, remove the seeds and filaments, toss it with olive oil, salt, pepper and rosemary. You can leave the skin on – it becomes very soft and is good for digestion.

Roast it until it’s soft and mushy. If you’re feeling greedy, add some butter at the end and watch it melt.


Now heat some olive oil in a non-stick pot and add the cinnamon and chopped onions. I prefer shallots or red onion, but I only had the normal white one so that’s what I used.


When the onion becomes translucent, add the butternut squash and lower the heat.


After about 3 minutes (stir so it doesn’t stick/burn), pour in your broth and wait for it to start bubbling


Taste for seasoning and blend it reeeeally well…


et voila! Done. 🙂 Add the topping and enjoy this heart-warming dish with a glass of red wine. And watch Orphan Black. I promise that it’s worth it!


Easy, huh?


About Full Of Daisies

I am permanently in love. Things I like: purple, pasta, silk, autumn, the smell of mould, candles, cachi, having friends, water, new things, rice, eggs (all eggs!), fresh grass, olive trees, shiny things, glitter, hanging objects, windcatchers, wind, couscous, wasabi, carnivores, presents, snow, leaves, orchids, feathers, cappelletti, meat, fruit (all fruit), more del gelso (Morus alba L.), pigs, candles, christmas, polenta fritta!, separating egg whites from yokes in my hands, cartoons, dragons, the ocean, nudibranchi, cows, mercury (the metal), cosmos (the flowers), thunderstorms, Mika, turtles, acquariums, green and blue (mixed), siccamores, spring, snails, 24, porc with a sweet sauce (apple, cranberry, tomatoes jam), looking at a swimming pool upsidedown and underwater, english accent, open-minded people, driving, blue skies, checkered tablecloths, butterflies, books and cartoons in rhyme, painting eggs, the star-shadows that football players have, silver, laughing, Vivaldi, bells and chimes, white and purple, creating. Complete Happiness: Early morning. Sun, with a breeze; a pond with water lilies. A house, with a garden, full of plants. A vegetable patch, lemon, orange and mandarin trees. Cosmos everywhere. Birds in the trees; a tortoise eating the salad from the vegetable patch; a mammal (I couldn’t decide which one would make me happier) close by. No houses for as far as the eye can see. Me, a man that loves me and that I love. Friends coming over for a lunch that I have to prepare, and have all the ingredients for all ready in the kitchen.
