- 1-1/2 lbs. yams or butternut squash (or other
- firm, orange-fleshed winter squash)
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon butter or Earth Balance
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
Peel squash or sweet potatoes and cut into 3/4-inch dice. Place water, prepared vegetables and salt into 2-quart saucepan; cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for approx. 15 minutes, until water is nearly absorbed and vegetables are tender. Watch closely so water doesn’t evaporate completely and burn vegetables (add more water if needed). Drain off any remaining water. Add butter and maple syrup to pan with vegetables. Place over low heat and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.
