Squash & red pepper soup with lumps of spicy sausage in it Squash & potato curry as a second dish with a meat curry Grated squash as an ingredient in a stir fry (sounds dubious, but it is really nice) Roasted squash and pepper as a side dish to almost anything Grated squash added in after the onion and before the tomatoes in a tomato sauce. Pumpkin pie of course
I don't know how many you have (I'm looking at 10 here in my sitting room, with another 40 or so elsewhere - transition cafe may be the only answer - but they will keep for a fair few months)
I've not tried them but I was recommended this list when I made a similar plea.
BTW if you're thinking of being inspired by Bake Off I can tell you that iced buns with pumpkin custard filling is NOT nice
Roasted pumpkin and sage risotto Spiced butternut squash cake (it's a Levi Roots cake that turns out like a carrot cake) with cream cheese frosting Curried pumpkin soup Roast with fennel seeds and new potatoes Squash, carrot and sweet potato mash
It's from the smitten kitchen list that has already been linked to but this is amazing Squash roasted with a bit of chilli on top of toast with sweet-sour vinegary caramelly onions, creamy tangy goats cheese and fresh zingy mint. Heaven. I don't really like squash, but I buy it just to make that.
I get that you are looking for something with meat in it, so maybe do this for lunch/ a snack? But please, please do make it
Squash roasted in little cubes, with salt and thyme and halved cherry tomatoes. While that's cooking make some pasta, and fry some bacon lardons, and a few pine nuts if you have them. Mix everything together with pesto. Is very nice!
Also cubed squash fried in mix of butter and oil until browned. Add in a big handful of chopped cherry tomatoes, salt and pepper, couple of torn sage leaves. Add dry fried cumin seeds and serve with pasta. Or you could add chicken to this and serve with baby roast potatoes?
Also if you like sweet tasting squash, try it cubed and roasted in a 50/50 mix of oil and brown sugar with half a teaspoon of cinnamon, salt and a bit of cayenne pepper. We have this with cardamom rice and raisins to accompany chicken.
How come I don't know about these sites? The eatdrinkcook site is fab, I have spent ages perusing. There are tons of recipes on there I would like to try. I do love cooking, it's just I was lacking a bit of inspiration for so many squashes...
swede Quite regularly do cinnamon sweet potato wedges, I hadn't thought about squash.
