I tried a new recipe last night using the following ingredients (I'm sorry, slacked in the picture taking of this experimental recipe):
1 butternut squash, cubed in relatively even sizes
2 Tbsp butter
2 fresh sprigs of thyme, leaves stripped off stalk
4-5 fresh sage leaves, minced
1 Tbsp orange juice
1/2 tsp minced roasted garlic
1-2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
milk (although it would have been the pictured buttermilk if it wasn't sour)
1/2 Tbsp herb cream cheese
1 tsp each, cinnamon and nutmeg, optional
salt and pepper, to taste
3) Lay squash on flat cooking sheet and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 15-20min. or until squash is fork-tender.
4) Once baked through transfer to a bowl. Pour in a Tbsp. of OJ, 2 Tbsp milk and add cream cheese (and optional cinnamon and nutmeg). Mash all together with a masher.
- If you like creamy, add more milk.
