    Peel the butternut squash (you can pierce it with a fork and then microwave it for 2 mins to make it easier), then cut it in small cubes (1 inch)

  • Step 3

    Pour the 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a casserole. Add the chopped onion, the garlic and some salt & pepper, let it cook for 5 minutes while stirring. To get kind of a smokey flavour, let the garlic and onion burn a little bit.

  • Step 4

    Add the butternut squash cubes and 2- 3 cups of water, the amount of water shouldn't exceed the ingredients. Let the mix cook all together for about 15 minutes. Time can vary a little bit depending on your stove. Use a fork to check if the squash is soft enough.

  • Step 5

    Use an electric mixer or a blender to mix it all and you are good to go! Remember that portion measurements aren't accurate, this could go well as a starter or a main meal, and that would vary the amount for each ingredient.
