Sweet and Savory Winter Squash Recipes

Do you love winter squash? It is one of my favorites because of the sweet, earthy flavors! Let’s not even consider how great these ideas are for hiding vegetables! Hopefully, your family will love choosing which of these winter squash recipes you make next.

If you are like me, you like to add nutrition to your baking. My kids can’t tell if some of these recipes have squash inside!!

And what better way to sneak in some nutrition than to add sweet winter squash to your baking and cooking? Squash cookies, cakes, and brownies! There are so many cooked squash recipes worth trying!

What are the different types of winter squash?

  • Spaghetti Squash is a fun, oval-shaped yellow squash. When this squash is cooked, the insides are fibrous. Run a fork over the flesh, and it scrapes up, looking like spaghetti. It makes a delicious paleo substitute for pasta!
  • Butternut Squash is one of my favorites for dessert and savory dishes. I review several different cooking methods for this squash in the recipes below. Also, keep looking for a cute heirloom variety called Honeynut Squash. I found it at Trader Joe’s last year; it is all the rage! Check out the breakfast recipe with honeynut below!
  • Acorn Squash is another versatile squash that works in savory and sweet dishes!
  • Kabocha Squash is a large squash that resembles a dark green pumpkin. It makes a beautiful centerpiece for a vegan Thanksgiving!
  • Delicata Squash is another sweet, smaller squash I have recently used to make delicious recipes. You will never know this squash is the star ingredient in my gluten free brownies recipe!
  • Kuri Squash is a funny pear-shaped red winter squash that occasionally appears at our farmer’s market. I think it is perfect for soups!
  • Pumpkins…you all know this winter squash pretty well if you follow my blog. I love using pumpkin throughout the fall for both sweet and savory recipes!

  1. Hi – thanks for these recipes. I am looking forward to trying a couple of them. When I clicked on the recipe for GLUTEN FREE CARAMEL CAKE BUTTERNUT SQUASH BARS – just a photo came up, no recipe. Wondering if this is meant to happen? Thanks again.

  2. Squash always brings me to a lot of surprises. I love all of your recipes! Actually, I have one secret squash recipes is stir-fried squash with pork that my grandmo used to cook when I was a child. It is the BEST! I hope I will have some more freetime so that I can share this recipe ๐Ÿ™‚
