Yield: 10 Servings
|2 mediums||Butternut squash; (less than two pounds each)|
|½ cup||Maple syrup|
|\N \N||Chopped Parsley, garnish|
Cut each squash lengthwise in half; discard seeds. Then cut each half crosswise into slices about 1 inch thick; cut off peel. (It occurs to me that this might be easier to do after the next step.) In a 5 quart saucepan over high heat, in 1 inch boiling water, heat squash to boiling. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 15 minutes stirring occasionally, or until squash is fork-tender. Drain.
In large bowl, with mixer at low speed, beat squash, maple syrup, and butter until smooth, scraping bowl often with a rubber spatula.
Spoon into a warm bowl; sprinkle with parsley.
