Half a medium sized butternut squash
A little water (if needed
Wash, peel and chop the butternut squash, discard the seeds. Steam until soft (approx. 20-30mins), either using a steamer or by placing in a colander over a pan of simmering water and covering (you could boil the butternut squash instead, if you prefer).
In a bowl, blend the butternut squash to a smooth puree, adding some water if required (just enough to get the right consistency) – a hand blender will give the smoothest texture, but a food processor or blender can also be used. For an even smoother texture, push the puree through a fine sieve.
