Butternut pumpkin, known in certain countries as butternut squash, has a sweet almost nutty flavour. Its yellow skin and orange flesh becomes even sweeter and richer when it is fully ripened. This fruit that is more commonly used in similar ways to those of vegetables is a great source of fibre, magnesium, potassium and many vitamins!
It can be roasted, mashed, pureed and even used in baked goods! The sweet flavour means you can basically use it as you would any other pumpkin.
Tip: Cut it in half and grill it with a bit of cinnamon or nutmeg before dicing up the flesh for a yummy, simple side dish!
