I want to make a butternut squash soup but don't want to peel the skin? What temperature do I roast it and for how long?
Cut, quarter the squash, brush with olive oil, Lay it on a baking sheet & bake at 400 F for about 40-45 minutes. At the end of the process, you'll be able to scoop the delicious flesh out with a spoon!
I used to cut them in half, scoop out the seeds and membranes, then steam in a large skillet, covered, on top of the stove. You can easily scoop out the pulp. Now I'm even lazier: lay the cleaned halves on a large plate, put in the microwave with a large cover and a little bit of water. Face down for both. You don't get the lovely carmelized taste, though.
