If you’re tired of peas and green beans, give butternut squash a place at your table.
Step 1: Wash and peel squash
Wash and peel your butternut squash with a vegetable peeler. Remove any seeds.
Your squash should have a matte skin. If it’s glossy it was picked too early.
Step 2: Cube squash

The sauteed squash should be tender enough to pierce with a fork.
Step 4: Add remaining ingredients and caramelize
Add the chicken broth, water, and brown sugar. Cook until the liquid is gone and the squash is caramelized, for about 6 minutes.
Step 5: Salt and pepper
Remove your squash from the heat and add salt and pepper. Not only is this side dish tasty, it’s got lots of nutrients for a healthy you.
