Serving Suggestion:

How To:

  1. To a medium sized pot bring 2 inches of water to a boil and add a steamer basket. Dice 1 cup of butternut squash and add to your steamer basket. Cover pot with a tight fitting lid and steam for 7 minutes.
  2. While butternut squash is steaming, add remaining ingredients to a high speed blender or food processor. Once squash is done steaming, add to your blender and process until smooth. Add water or more olive oil if needed to reach desired consistency.
  3. Top with whatever toppings you choose and serve with warm pita, fresh vegetables or add to avocado toast, enjoy!
