This mash is one of my favorites! It tastes delicious and goes wonderful as a side with steak, chicken and fish meals.
It’s also healthier than potato mash! 1 cup of butternut squash gives you a great amount of the vitamins you need for the day: vitamin A (437%) , vitamin C (52%). Plus around 10% of vitamin B6, vitamin E, vitamin B5, thiamin & niacin, folate, manganese and magnesium. It’s also an great source of potassium!
Here’s the recipe hope you enjoy it!
