Once you learn how easy it is to Peel and Cut Butternut Squash, you'll be dicing and chopping it up like a pro! Once you're done, roast the cubes in the oven, add to soups, salads, and more.
Trim both ends off of the butternut squash and then poke holes all over the squash with a large fork.
Microwave the squash for 2-3 minutes on high power, or until squash is tender. This may take a little longer if you have a very large squash.
Let cool until you can comfortably touch it and then peel butternut squash with a vegetable peeler. You can also remove the skin by carefully peeling the outer layer with a sharp knife.
Scoop out the seeds with a large spoon, scraping down the sides to release the strands. Discard the seeds.
