There's something wonderfully versatile about squash. Whole, it's robust enough to stand as a dramatic centrepiece; chopped, it's a vegetable amongst many; puréed, it provides a creamy base for soups and sauces.
These gorgeous recipes are all vegan, or (in the occasional case where I made it non-vegan to start with) can be easily made suitable with simple substitutions such as using non-dairy yoghurt or cheese.
I'll be updating this page as I develop more delicious squash recipes, so bookmark it now and refer back at your leisure.
Stuffed Squash Recipes
For a delightfully simple and healthy recipe, this acorn squash with sesame greens features a stir-fried mixture of kale and cabbage. It's ridiculously good for you, too.
Created as a copy-cat recipe for a restaurant dish that's vanished from the menu of a favourite pub, this mushroom-stuffed butternut squash is a creamy and indulgent treat.
One of my most popular recipes of all time, this butternut squash & spinach risotto is a brightly coloured plate full of healthy vegetables.
I made Turkish squash & chickpea stew while trying to win a trip to Turkey; I didn't succeed, but this dish is a winner.
Drawing on another popular Middle Eastern flavour, the raw heat of harissa was the inspiration for this casserole of harissa & mint roasted vegetables. It took me a while to get the hang of harissa, but I'm certainly a convert.
For a simple, warming winter recipe, you could do worse than a bowl of butternut squash & carrot soup. And at only 165 calories, this is a healthy option, too.
Or this butternut squash & split pea soup with Hungarian paprika is a more hearty option with a smokey taste.
