50 Best Winter Squash Recipes


Fall brings with it a harvest of gorgeous squashes in every color, size, or shape, all perfect to include in these 50 Best Winter Squash Recipes. Each recipe is plant-based, healthy, and delicious.

As the days shorten during the fall and winter months and the leaves turn from green to gold to crimson, we pull out our warm sweaters, and turn to soothing, comforting foods featuring seasonal produce. And when you think of fall and winter, you can’t overlook the power of winter squashes! Mother Nature really did it right when she created these wonderful, rugged plant foods in all of the gorgeous shades of autumn: amber, green, gold, and crimson. There are so many types of squash to enjoy, from acorn to carnival to turban. So, what better time to ask some of my favorite bloggers to share their 100% plant-based recipes featuring winter squash? You’ll find kabocha squash recipes, delicate squash recipes and beyond in this fabulous collection of Best 50 Winter Squash Recipes today!
