Butternut Squash Soufflé will add gourmet flair to your holiday table – but I promise it is so easy. With a sweet nutty taste similar to pumpkin, butternut squash is a good source of fiber and carotenoid antioxidants. This dish is also vegetarian and diabetic friendly! Look for packages of peeled, cubed squash in the produce section for extra ease – Shhhh; your secret is safe with me!
