Mashed Butternut Squash with Maple Syrup
3 lb butternut squash
1 Tbsp maple syrup
Pinch sea salt
Pinch freshly ground black pepper
2 tsp unsalted butter
Preheat oven to 350F. Slice squash in half, scoop out seeds and place, flesh side down, in baking pan with enough water to barely cover the pan’s bottom.
Bake 40 to 60 minutes until squash is very tender.
Scoop out cooked squash and transfer to a mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients and whip at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth.
