Here's a good question from longtime reader Adam.
I came across some big and beautiful "Turks Turban" Squashes. One of them is orange and green, the other is splotchy red and white. I was just wondering if you have any ideas for recipes I should try?
Adam, Turks Turban is a big decorative squash that is also very good to eat. You can roast it or steam it just like butternut, and you can use it in recipes in just about any way you use butternut, acorn, or other winter squash. Here are a few ideas:
• Recipe: Pasta with Butternut Squash, Sage, and Pine Nuts
• Recipe: Butternut Squash and Parmesan Dip
• Recipe: Warm Butternut Squash and Arugula Salad
• Eat This: Baked Acorn Squash Rings
Any more ideas for Adam?
