Butternut squash is unrivaled in terms of variety and sweet-savory seasonality when it comes to fall flavors. It's excellent roasted crisp or pureed smooth, and at any stage in between. It provides warmth and comfort to a variety of fall dishes, including pastas, soups, salads, and stuffings. It's also high in vitamin C and potassium! We don't want to pick favorites, but butternut squash is a close second to pumpkin.
