Spicy Butternut Squash Pie

I could eat butternut squash every single day.

Not only is it sweet, comforting and creamy, but butternut squash is also packed with fibre, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients. Winter squashes like butternut squash are especially high in beta-carotene, which the body converts into Vitamin A to maintain our skin, mucosal tissues, vision and immune health.

I usually use squash for soups like this one, but this soufflé-like pie was totally addictive. It tasted really rich, decadent and creamy, with a subtle hint of spices. You could certainly add more heat if you wanted, but I liked the spices hovering in the background.

While this dish would be a crowd-pleaser around the holidays, it’s easy enough to whip up for a weekday dinner and pairs nicely with a salad or some roasted vegetables.

You could change the flavour combinations here, too. Oregano, parsley, thyme and basil would be delish; a cumin, coriander, fennel and turmeric combo would work well, too.
