In this recipe I paired up the butternut squash with sweet potato to add a firmer consistency. I also added one shallot to "spice" up the flavor.
1 butternut squash, peeled while raw and seeded, cut into large chunks
1 large sweet potato peeled and cut into large chunks
1 medium shallot, quartered
1 tbsp butter
salt to taste
1/3 cup heavy cream
In a large saucepan with steaming basket, fill with water just enough to reach a little lower than the basket. Add all the vegetables and steam with cover on until they are very tender. Drain off water and return vegetables into the saucepan. Add butter, cream and salt, then mash with a potato masher until smooth but a little chunky.
