Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Slice butternut long-ways down the center. Scoop out seeds and marrow.
  3. Place cut side down flat on a baking pan or dish. Add a few tablespoons of water to the bottom of the pan and oil or butter to grease the pan if desired
  4. Transfer to oven and allow to roast for about 1hour depending on size of butternut. When finished the skin should be browned and soft to touch; the squash should be completely cooked through.
  5. Remove from oven and scrape the cooked squash out of the skin and transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  6. Use an immersion blender/blender/food processor or potato masher to blend the squash to a puree. Stir in salt, herbs OR cinnamon, and butter/ coconut oil. Use water from the pan if thinning is needed.
