Winter Squash Made Easy

I was talking about how much I love butternut squash soup with a friend this weekend, but that I don't make it because I hate trying to cut through the thick, tough skin. As a solution to this, she suggested baking the whole squash first and then peeling it. For a quicker fix, try wrapping the squash in plastic wrap and microwaving for 8-10 minutes then peeling. I'm looking forward to trying this and posting delicious squash recipes in the future!


  1. I have the same problem with making butternut squash soup. I found that you can buy butternut cubes at Trader Joe's. It skips the peeling AND cubing steps!

    1. I've been looking for those! Thanks for the tip!

  2. I cut it in half and roast it face down, then just scoop out the insides.
