Squash is one of the most versatile ingredients out there. With over 100 varieties of squash — from delicata squash to spaghetti squash to acorn squash — there’s no shortage of fantastic recipes to choose from, especially in the fall.

This multi-purpose ingredient can serve as the basis for a sweet and delicate pie, or the savory “meat” of a savory veggie burger. Whatever application you choose to use it in, squash is always tasty, nutritious and filling. This family of plants comes in many different shapes, sizes and colors, and depending on the variety, squash can be harvested at different times of the year.
