Simply Prepared Butternut Squash

One way to gain vitamins, minerals and fiber into your family's meal is to incorporate butternut squash in place of rice or potatoes. 

Microwaving butternut squash is fast - 

just the time it takes to peel, 


place in a microwavable container,

and cook on high for 6-8 minutes. 

It may be served cubed and seasoned, or mashed quickly.

Depending on the season, serving this nutritionally-packed vegetable in place of conventional starch might even prove gentler to your grocery expenses as well.
