Butternut Squash Bisque
April 27, 2007

Why turn on the oven when a microwave will do it in 1/3 the time? I cook butternut squash (and others) by cutting them in half, scooping out the seeds, laying the halves on a flat platter, covering with plastic wrap, and microwaving for 10 minutes or so. Test doneness with a fork, or you will see the shell start to collapse. Simply scoop squash out of the shell, and use as you wish. Also, if I want to cook squash cut up, I use my heaviest knife to bully through it, then the pieces are easy to peel with a large paring knife. Long live butternut squash!!!
