Roasted squash

 

Any type of squash (butternut, delicatta, acorn, etc) 

Oil 

Salt and pepper 

Rosemary/oregano/thyme (optional)

 

Preheat oven at 350 F 

Chop up the squash in the size you prefer 

Oil the pan and drizzle some on top of the squash 

Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste 

Add rosemary/oregano/ thyme or any other herbs you think would be good

Put in the oven until cooked  (you can check this poking it with a fork) this takes about half an hour but each type of squash cooks differently depending on how hard they are 

Done! 

You can serve with pasta and a little bit of butter or with rice and lentils or any other thing! 

 

You can save the seeds, wash them, dry them and toast them and keep them whole (you can add this to granola, oatmeal or as a topping to dishes) or grind them to make “pepita,” which in Guatemala is added to fruit with lemon and salt → apples and oranges are good with it! 

 

 

Butternut/carrot soup 

 

2 carrots

1 Butternut squash 

1 big potato 

Onion 

Garlic 

Thyme (optional) 

Salt and pepper 

 

You can roast the squash just with oil and then scoop the flesh out or cook it in water 

Chop carrots 

Chop potatoes

Chop onion and garlic 

Bring water to a boil (calculate just enough to cover the ingredients) 

Add potatoes, when a bit cooked add carrots 

Add the onion and garlic 

Add thyme, salt and pepper to taste 

Wait until everything is cooked 

Turn heat off 

Let it cool a little bit (5 min) 

Strain solid ingredients and keep the water in a bowl! 

Blend all solid ingredients with a bit of the water leftover 

Add water bit by bit as needed (you don’t want it too watery) → you can also add broth here 

Done!
