  • Yield: 4 cups (serving size: 1/4 cup)

Ingredients

  • 1 (2-pound) butternut squash
  • 1 small Walla Walla or other sweet onion, trimmed and quartered
  • 4 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons crème fraîche or whole sour cream
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°.

Cut squash in half lengthwise; discard seeds and membrane. Brush cut sides of squash halves, cut sides of onion quarters, and garlic cloves with oil. Arrange squash halves, cut sides down, on a jelly-roll pan; arrange onion quarters and garlic cloves on pan. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until tender. Cool slightly. Peel squash. Squeeze garlic cloves to extract pulp.

Place squash, onion, and garlic pulp in a food processor; process until smooth. Add crème fraîche and remaining ingredients; process to combine. Serve warm.

Note:

Refrigerate in a microwave-safe container, then reheat in a microwave on HIGH for one to two minutes or just until warmed.
