Buttercup Squash

Tid Bit(e) Tuesday

Buttercup squash is a type of squash with dense, texture flesh and a hard, thin rind. It taste kinda like an acorn squash but more creamy and slightly sweeter. It looks more like a kabocha squash. It’s a great squash to have on hand!

  1. WINTER- Sometimes it’s hard to find good sources of vegetables in the winter. This is where winter squash and root vegetables come in. Winter squash is usually found in your grocery stores throughout the cold months. And they provide a good amount of vitamins and nutrients.
  2. CARBS- Buttercup squash is about 85% complex carbohydrates to keep your energy up!
  3. MINERALS- The skin is packed with 22% of your RDV of calcium and compares with red meat in iron (AND yes you can eat the skin after its been cooked!)

Its great roasted with some ghee, cinnamon and salt!!
