We went to the farmers market yesterday and this one vendor had these cute smallish size buttercup squashes. I thought it would be easy to come home and find a recipe on the net, but there are surprisingly very few! Most are for butternut squash.

Anyone have a simple recipe for me?? :)

Is buttercup squash the one that looks like a cute little yellow spaceship? If so, you can cut it in half and steam, saute, roast or grill it. Think of it similar to zuccini, but just a different shape..or yellow summer squash, but different shape. It takes a bit longer to cook than zuc or summer squash. Now I am going to go google it to see if we're talking about the same thing. :)

Oh, I should have googled first. Ignore what I posted. Sorry. Buttercup is a winter squash and looks similar to an acorn squash. So...you could cut it up and roast or steam it. Remove the seeds and don't eat the skin. It will take longer to cook than the summer squashes..by quite a bit. I googled it and there were lots of recipes.
