Whipped Gingerbread Spice Butternut Squash

Serves 4 as a side

INGREDIENTS:
  • 2-pound butternut squash
  • 2 T. melted vegan margarine
  • 2 T. favorite dairy-free milk
  • 1 T. maple syrup
  • ½ t. salt
  • olive oil, for coating squash
Gingerbread Spice Crumble DIRECTIONS:
  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F and line a small tray with parchment paper.
  2. Cut the top and bottom off the squash and slice in half lengthwise. Drizzle cut side with a little olive oil and lay cut side down on the parchment paper.
  3. Place in the oven for 40-50 minutes until the squash is very soft and bubbling around the edges.
  4. Let cool a few minutes. Scoop out the seeds and discard. Scoop the inside of the squash into the bowl of a food processor and puree until smooth.
  5. Add the vegan margarine, dairy-free milk, maple syrup and salt and continue to puree until super smooth, about 1-2 more minutes.
  6. Spoon into a bowl and set aside while you make the Gingerbread Spice Crumble.
  7. Using your hands crumble up the Gingerbread Spice Cookies.
  8. Warm a small nonstick pan and add the olive oil. Pour in the cookies and the toasted seeds. Sauté for 4-5 minutes until the cookie crumbs are lightly browned.
  9. Mix in the minced parsley and then sprinkle all over the butternut squash puree.
