Ingredients

  • 1 medium acorn squash
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ginger root finely grated
  • 1/4 cup water breast milk or stock

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicon mat.
  • Cut acorn squash in half, de-seed and place on baking sheet, skin side down.
  • Cook in oven for 45-60 minutes or until squash is tender and can be pricked with a fork. Let cool slightly.
  • When cool enough to handle, remove squash from skin and place in blender. Add ginger and puree for 1-2 minutes adding liquid in 1/4 cup increments, if needed, until you have your desired consistency.

Notes

Additional Spices: instead of ginger, try adding in 1/2 tsp cloves, 3-4 basil leaves, 1 tsp fresh minced rosemary, 1/2 tsp cinnamon or even 1/2 tsp coriander.
