squash pairing - 22 Apr 2016

Meal suggestions with a couple different kinds of squash. Microwave 8-10 minutes in a pyrex container with 3 Tbs of water in the bottom is usually a good starting point; you should be able to easily slide a fork into the fruit.

acorn

Green with ridges.

Great to add to chilis, soups, and curries as it dissolves quite easily into the dish. Pair with couscous, refried beans, cheese, and green chili for fast lunch or dinner.

butternut

Long, off-white/orange, traditional gourd looking, this squash is sweeter and more solid than other squashes when prepared.

Add cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar, and you have a much faster pumpkin-ish dessert.

spaghetti

At the grocery, you are looking for an oval fruit with off-white shell color.

Stringy like spaghetti when scraped out of the shell, this squash works great for adding more texture and mellow flavors.
