Squash Parsley Dip

Being fall, squash is in season and is a perfect comfort food when the days and nights are getting chillier.

I love having squash in soups and stews, roasted with other veggies, or just baked and eaten out of the skin, but sometimes I want to do something slightly different to enjoy squash in a new way.

This dip is perfect, because it's rich and creamy but lower in fat and calories than the creamcheese-, mayo- or sour cream-based dips you see at so many holiday parties.

Plus, this dip is loaded with nutrients from the squash and even more from fresh parsley. Both are high in vitamins A and C, which are helpful for your immune system so you can keep smiling while those around you are sniffling.

Parsley is a nutritional powerhouse, adding lots of iron, folate and vitamin K to this dip

Serves

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked butternut squash
  • 1 cup fresh parsley

  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Preparation

WOW! It looks so yummy! I will definitely try this one for thanksgiving! BTW - I found a great vegan wine at Whole Foods Market, it is called "Deccolio Prosecco" and it will be great aperitif to the holiday dinner.
