Grated Sweet Potato & Butternut Squash Puree

Test Kitchen-Approved

Author Notes: Inspired by a recipe that appeared in Judith Jones' memoir, this puree uses that other attachment on your Cuisinart and couldn't be easier or tastier. It's a perfect extra, last-minute vegetable for Thanksgiving because it's expandable, simple and requires assembly more than actual cooking.EBeier
