Winter comes together with cold, but with parties, and gatherings, and friends and family are coming as well! Among Thanksgiving, Christmas day and New Year’s Eve there are many opportunity to spend the cold days together with the people we love. Just thinking about these moments, I made this simple and tasty butternut squash spread. The sweet taste of butternut squash blends perfectly with the smoked paprika and sour notes of the goat cheese. A pinch of cayenne pepper will give at your dip an edge over, making it unique and warming your heart even more!
Winter rhymes with slow cooked and braised meats (do you feel the rhyme?!?). Here I suggest you a fragrant butternut squash compote: it is excellent as an accompaniment for slow cooked meats, like a pot roast or pulled pork. The secret to make a yummy compote is to measure out the balance between sweet and spicy. Usually I prepare the butternut squash compote portions in advance: in this way it will be ready in a few minutes during all the cold season!
