Mashed Butternut Squash

Serves 4-6

I LOVE this recipe!


  • 5-6 cups of peeled and 1” diced butternut squash (or winter squash of your choice)
  • 1 large sweet onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh sage or rosemary


In a large, heavy skillet, sauté the onion in the olive oil until it begins to soften. Add the butternut squash and continue cooking over medium heat, stirring often until the squash is tender and cooked through (about 10-12 minutes). Reduce the heat and mash the squash/onion mixture with a potato smasher or the back of a large fork to your desired consistency. I prefer mine a bit coarse. Top with the fresh sage or rosemary and serve.
