Tip #10 | How to Cook Squash

Squash is a versatile fruit that is savory like a vegetable and packed with nutrients. It has virtually no fat, yet it’s simultaneously filling and easy to digest. In this tip video, chef Alex Bury demonstrates the easy way to cook, cut, and prepare butternut squash, and how to incorporate it into recipes.

This is an important-skill for every vegan to master! The same method works with other hard winter squashes like acorn, delicata, and kabocha. Many thanks to Alex for contributing this tip.
