Why This Recipe Works

In our butternut squash soup recipe, we got the most flavor out of our squash by sautéing shallots and butter with the reserved squash seeds and fibers, simmering the mixture in water, and then using the liquid to steam the unpeeled squash (thereby avoiding the difficult task of peeling raw squash).
