Baked Butternut Squash Mash

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes

Ingredients(Makes 4 servings):
• 3 cups butternut squash puree*
• 1/2 cup almond cream(recipe below) or regular cream or other non-dairy cream
• 3 Tablespoons maple syrup
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
• 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
*This is easy to make yourself. Roast a medium-sized butternut squash until the inside is soft. Scoop the flesh out from the skin and puree it in a food processor until smooth.

For the almond cream:
• 3 Tablespoons smooth almond butter
• 5 Tablespoons water
1. In a small bowl, whisk together the almond butter and water until it forms a rich and smooth liquid.
1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees
2. Stir together the butternut squash puree, cream, maple syrup, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg until completely combined.
3. Scoop the squash into a large casserole dish or individual ramekins. Bake for 20-30 minutes until the squash is heated through and the top has goldened slightly and begun to crack.
4. Garnish with cinnamon and serve hot.

There were no leftovers, but I figured a picture of a half-eaten bowl was better than an empty bowl.
