Butternut squash with oatmeal. Could use some cinnamon and/or maybe some vanilla extract.

Recipe Ingredients for Butternut Oatmeal

1 cup water
1/2 cup rolled oats
225 grams butternut squash
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp brown sugar unpacked
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Recipe Directions for Butternut Oatmeal

  1. Boil water.

  2. Add oats to water and boil, covered, for at least 2-3 minutes.

  3. Shred the squash and add it to the water. Add salt and stir well.

  4. Cover and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. It's okay if it sticks to the pan slightly as long as it isn't burning. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to scrape the bottom of the pan clean each time you stir. Don't leave the cover off too long.

  5. Add sugar, vanilla extract and salt and cook uncovered to the desired consistency, about 10 minutes. The squash should be soft enough to smooth fairly well with a spoon or spatula.
