Butternut squash pie

ελληνικα

There are lots of pumpkins out there. I haven’t tried them all (yet). However, the taste of the butternut squash was an amazing surprise for me (in Greece where I grew up, these type of pumpkins are not usually found in our cuisine). What got my attention was its weird shape and its intensively warm orange color. And then came the taste. You know this feeling, when you try something for the first time without any particular expectations and maybe even with some skepticism and when you get a first bite the incredible flavor makes you stop chewing and turn your head to the plate saying out loud “Amazing!”. That’s what happened with this beautiful pumpkin. I’m going deeper with it, I want to know more, I’ll keep you posted!
