The best time to eat squash is undoubtedly in the fall. The warm, rich flavors of any squash variety pair so well with a number of other fall favorites. Squash is versatile, too! Both summer and winter squash varieties are able to convert into a number of different meals, and most are available year-round. Keep reading for fall squash recipes that will positively transform your autumn menus!
I love incorporating squash into different meals. It’s high in lots of vitamins and nutrients, making it good for both me and Baby J to eat regularly. I can get a ton of varieties at local farmer’s markets, and even when those are done for the season the grocery store usually carries a hefty variety, too. While I don’t encourage “hiding” vegetables (well, technically squash is a fruit because of its internal seeds), squash is also easily and deliciously disguised in some recipes, making them tolerable for even the pickiest of eaters.
