Delectably silky, with a mildly sweet flavor, butternut squash is a vegetable that works well in both sweet and savory dishes. Purée it into soups, roast and toss into salads or bowls, and stuff with a plethora of other delicious ingredients. It’s a very simple vegetable to store and prepare: It will last for months in a cool, dry place and the skin easily cuts away with a potato peeler. In creamy soups, savory sides, and even a pizza—butternut squash shines in these delicious fall recipes.
