Winter Squash is, in my opinion, one of the most perfect foods. There many different types and all are so versatile. They can be stuffed, used to make soups, casseroles, side dishes, desserts, and main courses. Whether it be butternut, acorn, spaghetti, pumpkin, delicata, hubbard or kabocha they can all be roasted or baked and turned into delicious and visually stunning meals. As far as the nutrition benefits, winter squash is one of the best plant sources for anti-inflammatory nutrients such as omega 3s and beta-carotene that are good for boosting the immune system and warding off colds and flu.
