Vegan Mofo 1st's; Butternut addiction

I couldn’t resist buying a beautiful, seasonal Butternut Squash, and picked one up the other day with absolutely no recipes in mind.
The deliciousness was shared out into;
First having roasted ¼ of squash with Marinated Tofu and salad
Then Parsnip, Ginger and Butternut Squash soup (winning combo)
Today I made Carrot and Butternut soup
Feeling pretty Autumny at the moment as the weather has seriously turn, and my ‘big coat’ is still in the loft, so it has becoming a very ‘Hot Soup’ and ‘Ginger Black Tea’ affair in my household.
Sadly now all the squash is gone...
Can I restrain myself from buying another? I don’t think so.
Exciting plans include; substituting Squash for Pumpkin to make a spicy sweet cake.
More Butternut soups, and... Butternut Squash Pasta! much Squash in my life.
Might explore the idea of growing them myself next year, (tips welcome) so I can have a steady supply on my doorstep.


  1. I looooove butternut squash, I just made an amazing butternut cashew alfredo from the PPK blog & when you buy another you should definitely try it.

  2. Nice! I am not a huge fan of pumpkin but this does look delish! And good luck growing them :)
