This photo guide takes you through how to roast butternut squash — and you’ll see how incredibly easy it is! Then you can use it in dozens of recipes!Even before taking pictures of food was part of my job description, I’d find myself in the middle of cooking a recipe looking for my camera.
The simple beauty of an ingredient can make me pause. Whether I’m peeling asparagus or an onion, slicing beets or citrus, or maybe simply swirling melted butter around a pan, I’m constantly struck at how beautiful food can be.
And it can happen over and over with the same foods — for example, every time I slice a roasted butternut squash in half, I love seeing the rich and deep orange color reveal itself, and I slow down, maybe even stop briefly — it’s like a lull in a conversation. I welcome these interruptions when I’m in the kitchen — in fact, it’s part of what I love about cooking.
I’ve been working with squash a lot and think it’s important it is to know how to roast butternut squash. If you haven’t done it, it might seem daunting , and having the roasted squash at the ready during the fall and winter months is a must. I want to make sure you all know just how easy it is!
