Butternut Squash Recipes I Love

Happy Thursday my friends.  I hope your week is going well.  It’s freezing cold in Dallas today – WTF!  I’m so not ready for cold weather, boo!  I just finished teaching my usual, back to back cycling classes at BEYOND Pedaling and when I left the studio I felt like my sweat immediately transformed into icicles.

Fortunately, I have no plans this evening so I’m going to curl up at my bachelorette pad and cook a yummy dinner.  I recently had a delicious butternut squash pizza at True Food Kitchen (love that place) which got me in full-on “butternut squash recipe mode.”

Thoroughly enjoyed my butternut squash pizza from True Food Kitchen last weekend!

I bought myself a butternut squash earlier this week and just just chopped it up and roasted it.  The squash I bought is huge, so I can make lots of different dishes. I did some web research and discovered 5 butternut squash recipes that I’m determined to try before the end of the month.  They all look amazing!

Getting ready to scoop this sucker out and chop it up!

Nutrition Tip: Not only is this butternut squash delicious,  it’s loaded with anti-oxidants, fiber and Vitamin A (more Vitamin A than pumpkins).  It’s also low in calories (only about 45 per serving) and has no saturated fats or cholesterol.

Have you made any of the dishes below?  Let me know!
