- To boost vegetables, add 2 cups chopped carrots with the squash.
- To cut saturated fat, use 2 tablespoons vegetable oil instead of butter to sauté onion and butternut squash and carrots.
- To cut sodium prepare with low sodium broth. To cut sodium further, substitute water for half of the broth.
