The Best Butternut Squash Anna Recipes We Can Find

Butternut squash is such a great tasting fruit, with a sweet, nutty taste very similar to that of a pumpkin.

It has a very pleasing and comforting taste that even picky eaters tend to enjoy. Using more butternut squash in your family dinners is a great way to get the entire family eating more healthy vegetables.

Did you know that butternut squash is classed as a cold weather superfood? Sure it may contain a lot of carbs, but it has loads of health benefits, thanks to all the vitamins, antioxidants and fiber. It’s also high in potassium, which can help keep your blood pressure in check.

I’ve got some really great butternut squash recipes shortlisted here for you to check out – I’m sure you’ll find one that you love. Here goes!

I’m going to kick things off with a recipe for Butternut Squash Anna (a butternut squash version of Pommes Anna). But it’s a super simple dish to make, and there aren’t many different versions of it around on the net to be honest.

So after that, I’m going to some great butternut squash recipes made by people called Anna, lol.

Poached Roasted Chicken With Butternut Squash Anna (By Madalene – The British Larder)

Pommes Anna is a dish that originates from France, and is traditionally made with potatoes. But Madalene has found that butternut squash makes for an excellent alternative to potatoes.

It has all the starchy energy and goodness that you find in potatoes, but with a much more interesting flavor. Moreover, it also just so happens that butternut squash cooks much faster than potatoes.

Madalene has made the butternut squash Anna recipe as a side dish to go alongside a nice meat dish, but I reckon you could make it a main dish if you simply increase the amounts of the ingredients. Perfect for serving up to any vegetarian dinner guests.

The butternut squash Anna only requires 4 ingredients, namely butternut squash, butter, and salt and pepper. You will also need a round cutter to cut the squash into the desired shape. 

The chicken dish is really nice too. And it doesn’t take too long to prepare.

This is a really nice dish, perfect for satisfying vegetarian eaters. It’s made with crusty baked polenta, swirled with a very nice combination of mashed butternut squash together with smoked Gouda cheese.

It takes a long time to make, just over 2 hours, but it’s absolutely worth it.

What I love about this recipe, besides the amazing taste, is that it requires minimal effort, which makes it perfect for a nice, satisfying, quick midweek meal after a long day at work.

There is no fancy equipment or any complicated techniques required, and for even more convenience you can use pre-rolled pastry. All you have to do is chop, bake, scatter and bake again, that’s it.

The nutty butternut squash works perfectly with the creamy, rich goats cheese, combining sweet and salty flavors. And better yet, it’s 100% vegetarian.

If you wish, you can make it ahead of time. It will keep in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. And the tomato chutney and rosemary sprigs make an excellent finishing touch.

Now, this is a particularly simple and straightforward recipe. You simply slice the butternut squash about halfway into thin, fan-like slices and roast it in the oven, with a really nice maple syrup based glaze.
