Delicious and Nutritious Meals for Your Littlest Foodie!
Butternut squash is my favorite fall food and my Littlest Foodie loves it too! I take the leftover butternut squash from this recipe and whip up butternut squash soup for my husband and I – so yummy and incredibly easy!
Fill a stockpot that has a steamer insert with 3 cups of water. Bring water to a boil and add butternut squash to boiling water. Boil butternut squash for 10 minutes. Add zucchini slices to steamer insert, cover and steam above the boiling butternut squash for 7-10 or until both butternut squash and zucchini are tender.
Reserve 1 ½ cups of cooking water. Add butternut squash, zucchini squash and a ½ cup of cooked rice to a blender or food processor. Add spice and reserved cooking water to reach your desired consistency.
Makes about 3 cups of Squashy Rice Puree.
If you want to use the leftover 3/4 of the butternut squash to make an easy and delicious soup for you, I adapted this recipe: http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/butternut_squash_apple_soup/ by using 3/4 of a butternut squash and no celery and it turned out great!
