Butternut Squash and Potatoes Hash with Fresh Herbs
Butternut Squash is a winter squash. They are plant during the Summer; but they are ready to harvest at the end of Fall, and they last all through winter with any need of refrigeration, unless you cut into them. They are sweet and can be use in many different ways from savory to sweet recipes. Also when cook they keep their shape, they do not mashed, unless you mashed them; and if you want to, they will subdue very easily. Their buttery and nutty flavor makes it a perfect vegetable to create spreads. Try roasting it and then use it in the preparation of butternut pesto, using pine-nuts will increase the nuttiness taste.
Good to Know
Great replacement for potatoes, you can use them instead or with them.
Butternut Squash and Potato Hash with Fresh Herbs
Peel Butternut Squash with a Vegetable Peeler, Diced to desire size ( I diced them small),
Do the same to a small white potato.
Heat a heavy bottom pan, add oil and heat again. At the same time add the squash and the potatoes.
Sprinkle with Homemade Seasoning Salt and saute until tender, they will take a nice roasted color.
Chop a Parsley Spring, Thyme and 3 large leaves of basil, all roughly chopped together.
Mix and serve.
P.S. I have in a planter a small herb garden with my favorites. It gives you fresh aromas just as you pass by them. And is a nice addition to any meal
