Simple Cooked Squash
I am not really a patient person and do not like to wait for things to cook so I took the easy way out by microwaving this squash.
Take squash (I used 2 buttercup and 1 pumpkin) and cut them in half. Scoop out seeds. If halves are large, cut in half.
Find a large baking dish or bowl that fits into your microwave. Fit squash pieces into bowl or dish. Cover with water.
Cook on high for 21 to 25 minutes or until squash is soft.
I liked cooking my squash this way because it was fast, simple and it kept the squash moist. Squash is packed with tons of vitamins and minerals such as vitamins A and C. Half a cup of buttercup squash has only 30 calories which is super low. This particular squash is creamy and sweet. It made a perfect addition to my yogurt and it filling too.
