As you know, I appreciate Costco. I really like a lot of the produce that is offered there. The last time I went I saw a 2 pound bag of cubed butternut squash. Because the peeling and cutting of squash is the main reason why I don’t eat it much I decided to go for it and buy this bag of orange cubes. It was a great plan. Because although my kids and husband don’t appreciate squash much, I truly love it. I was able to make this squash in the slow cooker and then eat it for lunch for several days after.
- 2 lbs of butternut squash (peeled and cut into cubes, I buy mine that way)
- 3/4 tsp kosher salt
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- Fresh ground pepper, to taste
- Brown sugar, optional
- Add squash to the slow cooker.
- Sprinkle the salt and olive oil and ground pepper over the squash. Give a little stir to evenly distribute.
- Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 hours or on LOW for 5-6 hours.
- Remove lid, stir and serve. (I actually sprinkled mine with a tiny bit of brown sugar just to give it a little more sweetness).
Ideal slow cooker: casserole crock
