Orange, Miso Butternut Squash

Orange, Miso Butternut Squash
Early fall brings with it a bounty of hard squashes, and one of the most popular - and most readily available - is the familiar butternut squash.

If you're tired of the same old baked or steamed versions and feel like trying something a little out of the ordinary, this deliciously different preparation could be just the ticket.

1 pound butternut squash, peeled and cut into ¾ inch cubes
2 ½ Tbsp. miso
2/3 cup orange juice
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil



Place the squash on a plate and cover loosely with plastic wrap. Microwave on high for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the squash begins to soften. Set aside; the squash will continue to steam & soften under the plastic wrap.

In a small bowl, combine the miso, orange juice and soy sauce. Set aside.


In a large sauté pan or skillet over medium to medium-low heat, add the sesame oil. When it is hot, add the microwaved squash, stirring occasionally, and cook for a few minutes until it is tender and any raw taste is gone. Add the miso mixture and stir to mix well.


Serve warm or cold.
