I picked up a butternut squash at the farmers market, and thinking of making one of my favorites, warm butternut squash and chickpea salad (smittenkitchen). I have some farro and spinach on hand so might just top it with the squash. Or perhaps ?? Last fall I made an orzo, spinach, butternut squash recipe that I really like so I might look that up too .....
INGREDIENTS 1 tbsp olive oil 1 red onion, diced 2 garlic cloves finely chopped 1/2 small jalapeno, chopped (seeds removed) 1/2 tsp cumin 1/2 tsp paprika 1 tsp sea salt 1/2 tsp ground black pepper 1 15.5 oz. can black beans (no salt added) 2 large tomatoes, diced 1 cup vegetable broth 4 cups butternut squash, cubed 1 bay leaf optional: lime wedge, fresh cilantro, avocado (for garnish)
INSTRUCTIONS Press the "Saute" button on the Instant Pot and add the olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the red onion, garlic, jalapeno, sea salt, black pepper, paprika, and cumin. Cook until the onions are soft, around 3-4 minutes. Stir in the black beans, diced tomatoes, and the broth. Add butternut squash on top of the mixture; do not stir. Close the Instant Pot lid and set valve to sealing. Press the "Manual" button and cook on high pressure for 6 minutes. Let the pressure release naturally and then release the remaining pressure manually. Remove and discard the bay leaf.

My Warm Butternut Squash Salad is on the menu at the end of this week to accompany some grilled salmon. If you click on the link, there's a picture in the blog post, but I'll share the recipe here to make it easy.
Warm Butternut Squash Salad a Tummy Treasure original
Serving Size : 8
1 butternut squash — peeled, seeded and cut into cubes 2 teaspoons olive oil salt and pepper — to taste 1 can black beans — drained and rinsed (15 oz. can) 1 bell pepper — seeded and diced 1/2 cup red onion — diced fine 1 jalapeno — seeded and finely diced 3 tablespoons fresh parsley — chopped 5 slices bacon — cooked and crumbled Spicy Sweet Vinaigrette: 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar 2 tablespoons honey 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice — juice from 1 lemon 1 teaspoon lemon zest 1/3 cup olive oil salt and pepper — to taste
Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
Place the cubed butternut squash on the baking sheet, drizzle with the olive oil, and sprinkle with the salt and pepper to taste. Mix it around a bit to evenly distribute the oil and seasonings
Bake in the oven for about 35 minutes, stirring the squash twice during baking, until the edges are golden brown and the squash is easily pierced with a fork.
Meanwhile, place the black beans in a microwave safe bowl and cook on high for three minutes, or until the beans are nice and hot. Prepare the vinaigrette by placing all the ingredients into a mason jar with a tight-sealing lid and shake vigorously for about 30 seconds.
Gently put the cooked squash in a large mixing bowl. Add the black beans, bell pepper, onion, jalapeno, parsley and 1/2 cup of the vinaigrette. Toss gently and season with a touch of salt and pepper if desired.
Transfer the salad to a serving bowl or platter. Top with bacon crumbles. Serve with extra dressing on the side.

I made this Butternut Squash Spaghetti with Sausage and Sage for dinner guests over the weekend. Didn't follow it exactly, that's how I roll. I doubled it and used more butternut squash than the recipe called for. Served the blue cheese on the side so people could add as much or as little as they wanted. It got 6 big thumbs up.
