Randy, from The Simple Chef, demonstrates the simple method of how to cook buttercup squash. Randy is looking for something particularly simple to make, as he has promised dinner to a special girl, however it is obvious that he has recently been injured in an accident. He begins by quartering the squash, and hollowing it. He suggests scoring the remaining inside to allow the ingredients to get deeper into the squash. This technique of cooking squash can be used for any of the hard shelled winter squash varieties, and Randy suggests a pairing of Chicken and mushrooms with rice to compliment the Buttercup squash after removing it from the oven. This video provides a simplistic method of cooking squash that can be altered to cook a multitude of squash varieties.
