Oh man oh man, this raw butternut squash recipe is so easy and so good! And if you’re lucky enough to live near a store that sells prepackaged cubed organic butternut squash, you have it made! We discovered it at Whole Foods. But you can of course use a whole butternut squash and cube it up.

Pureed Raw Butternut Squash with Agave, Allspice and Cayenne

16 ounces cubed butternut squash
Agave nectar
Ground allspice
Ground cayenne (red pepper)
1/4 cup water

Put the cubed raw butternut squash in the food processor with the “s” blade (the chopping blade that looks like an “s”). Add about 1/4 cup of water (ideally use filtered water).

Process (if your food processor has speeds, use high speed) the squash and water until completely pureed and smooth. It will take a few minutes and you will need to stop the processor a few times and scrape the sides.

When the squash is completely pureed and smooth, add salt and pepper to taste.

Spoon the squash into serving bowls. Drizzle just a small drizzle of agave nectar in a swirl in the center of the bowl on top of the squash puree. On top, sprinkle just a dash of ground allspice, and on top of that just a dash of cayenne (red) pepper.

This is so delicious!
