What is your favorite squash recipe?

I just finished the second half of my first spaghetti squash! I put some sea salt, coconut oil, and a couple cloves of garlic in it and put it in the oven at 375 for an hour. The top "intestines" were all dry but I ate them any the seeds anyway. The squash was delicious but I'd like to spice it up. What do you like to do with spaghetti squash, or squash in general? I discovered my favorite way to make butternut squash- After boiling and mashing the squash, I made garlic butter and on a whim threw in some minced ginger... turned out to be one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten!

Butternut squash soup!

  1. a.Cut squash in half, roast in 400* oven. b.Caramelize chopped onion in butter (or bacon fat!), lowest heat.

  2. Take a bath. Everything in step one takes about an hour.

  3. Add a bunch of chicken stock and a can of coconut milk to the onions, along with the roasted squash, 1-2T of grated ginger, and 1T of curry powder. Heat to delicious.

  4. Puree.

  5. Eat!

this is a little more elaborate but the central ingredient is butternut squash so I think it counts...LOVE this recipe!

I found this recipe online, unfortunately have lost the original link to it:

Grain Free Bitter Chocolate Pancake Stack

  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 Tablespoons of squash puree, like pumpkin, sweet potato, or butternut squash
  • splash of vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • water

Mix all ingredients thoroughly and add a dash of water to make the right consistency. The batter should be thick. Make pancakes by pouring the batter onto a greased pan on medium heat. Flip when the pancakes get bubbly. Top with cacao nibs!

I'll second pairing spaghetti squash with a meaty marinara sauce.

Another way I like to top spaghetti squash with shrimp, asparagus, and a garlic-laden white wine reduction sauce.

Finally, leftover spaghetti squash is great sauteed in butter, garlic, and turmeric!

My two favorite squash "recipes" are extremely simple. For spaghetti squash, I have found microwaving (which I am not opposed to) leads to the best result for me. I don't do anything but cut it in half, scoop out the seeds and nuke it face down until the outside of the squash begins to become soft. I will then mix with scrambled eggs and sausage and eat for breakfast after working out. I like it cold or hot.

For butternut squash, I peel the squash, remove the seeds, chop it up and bake at 400-425 for 25-30 minutes. I'll usually drizzle coconut oil over the top and sprikle cinnamon and/or paprika. Again, this is great with eggs and sausage for breakfast.

We just had our favorite squash recipe last night: Veggie Fish

2 -3lbs of zucchini and/or summer squash 4 cloves garlic 1 jar all natural chunky salsa 5 fillets of fish (tilapia work great) homemade taco seasoning 1Tbls coconut oil

Set oven to 450 degrees. Saute' the squash in the coconut oil with the garlic over medium high heat just until it is a little browned but not tender yet. Sprinkle the fish with the taco seasoning. Add the jar of salsa to the squash and simmer while the fish bakes in the oven (about 5-7 min).

Spoon the squash/salsa mixture onto your plate and top with a fillet of fish. Yummmmmmmmy! This served my family of 6 with some squash left over.

P.S. I added an eggplant to the veggies just to experiment last night. It was just 'ok'. We used to use less squash and served this over rice before we went Paleo.

Summer squash I do in a pan I just cooked bacon in sliced with sweet onions then with the bacon bits on top.

Or as a cassrole with eggs, rocotta, onions and chedder.

Winter squash gets sliced and layered in the crock with meat or white wine and butter or the like.

i just had mashed roasted butternut squash for dinner last night. it was so delicious and creamy! I baked it the same way as CraftyCrofts, then scooped it all into a bowl and mashed it with a generous portion of garlic butter. So simple yet unbelievably tasty!

I cooked some spaghetti squash up the other night and liked it. I didn't like one I got last summer. I cut it in half lengthwise and then baked it in a pan of 1/2 inch of water (cut sides down) for however long the sticker on it said to. turned it into pasta and mixed it with onion, ground pork and organic (probably full of sugar but I didn't look) pasta sauce from a jar. My 1/5 y/o and 3 y/o ate it like there was no tomorrow. 5 y/o wasn't in love but ate it. Now I've planted two spaghet. squash vines in my garden.
