  • 1 head broccoli, cut into florettes and stems peeled and 1/4 sliced
  • 1 small winter squash (butternut, hokkaido, buttercup,sweet)
  • 1/2 tablespoon melted butter
  • salt to taste
  • Serves: 4
    Cooking Time: Under 30 minutes
    Instructions:
    If steaming squash: Cut into quarters. Scoop out seeds and place in a heavy pot with enough water to reach 1/2" depth. Cover, bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. If baking squash: Cut squash lengthwise in half. Lightly oil a baking pan and add 1/4 cup water. Invert squash onto pan and bake at 375 until a fork easily pierces skin, about 30 minutes. Using a pot holder, scoop seeds out of baked squash and discard. Scoop flesh into a blender and add butter, Sea Salt and enough water to make a sauce-like consistency. Blend until smooth. Adjust seasonings to taste. Serve over lightly steamed broccoli.
