Monday's Meal: Easy Butternut Squash with Sage

Monday's Meal: Easy Butternut Squash with Sage

Yesterday, we welcomed the fall season with a simple stuffed squash. It's a festive recipe, but one that doesn't leave much for leftovers. If you do have any leftover, you can try warming it up and serving with pasta. However, since most of us won't have anything left to work with, I thought I'd find another fall recipe for us to try tonight. This meal for Butternut Squash with Shallots and Sage looks fantastic and definitely sounds like an easy Monday meal. To get the recipe,

Serve this dish with your choice of grain (couscous, rice, pasta, etc.) and a side salad to round it out.

Butternut Squash with Shallots and Sage
From Gourmet October 2005

2 tablespoons olive oil
3 shallots, halved lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices (3/4 cup)
1 (1 3/4-lb) butternut squash, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded, and cut into 1/2-inch cubes (4 cups)
1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth or water
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh sage
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Makes 4 servings.

  1. Heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat until hot but not smoking, then cook shallots and squash, stirring, until shallots are softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add broth, brown sugar, sage, and salt, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, until squash is tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vinegar, pepper, and salt to taste.

DC Star, I was just thinking that! I would probably add some cream to the puree and serve it with a glob of sour cream...mmm, I love butternut squash! I also just made the stuffed acorn squash recipe last night and it was great!

If you cook this recipe, then blend it all together and add another cup or two of broth, you can make a DELICIOUS soup!

sugarfreak - i bet a sprinkle of cinnamon would be absolutely fab! I love the way butternut squash pairs with cinnamon, and I love cinnamon and savory together. Give it a try!
SugarFreak SugarFreak 10 years this sounds absolutely like autumn heaven! Mmmmm! I can't wait to try it out. I wonder how it would taste with a sprinkle of cinnamon added? Yum, have you tried it with that? I wonder how that would taste... :feedme:
