These cozy butternut squash recipes will vastly improve your winter

Who ever said butternut squash was strictly an autumnal affair?

Butternut squash — heralded as a harbinger of fall, of the turn from bright summer berries to decorative gourds and homely root vegetables — has perhaps lost a bit of its thrill as we find ourselves in the doldrums of winter produce. We've loved it since it resurfaced in October, but now our peelers are dulling and our CSAs seem to apologize for their predictable haul of oranges and browns.

But the trusty butternut wants you to remember that it's a winter squash, and it's here to keep working for you. Full of surprises, it cozies up with miso, crisps into herbed chips, and swirls into a hummus doppelganger. Here are (almost) a dozen ideas to help you rekindle your romance at the farmers' market.
