Hubbard squash is a delicious nutritious winter squash and we have the best recipes for you in our 12 Wholesome Hubbard Squash Recipes round-up.
Hubbard squash is a type of winter squash with a hard outer shell and orange flesh. It can grow to a large size and because of its hard shell, it lasts longer than other squashes.
The outer shell is not edible but the orange flesh has a delicious sweet nutty taste. Hubbard squash is nutritious and high in vitamins, minerals and fiber. You can find hubbard squash in farmer's markets and health food shops in October and November.
Hubbard squash can be used in any recipe calling for winter squash. Roasting brings out its sweet nutty flavor, but you can also boil or steam it and blend it into a smooth puree. Puree from steamed or roasted hubbard squash can be used in baked goods like bread, muffins, and pies; stirred into pasta dishes or casseroles, to make soups, you can even add it to your smoothie.
