“From Brand Name Vegetarian from the National Honey Board. I was wondering what to do with those exotic honeys I bought. Note I have omitted the butter without subsitute and it works well.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 -2 12 cups winter squash, peeled and cubed
  • 1 turnip, pared and cubed
  • 2 carrots, pared and sliced
  • 1 small onion, quartered
  • 14 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons Take Control Light spread or 2 tablespoons butter, melted or 2 tablespoons Butter Buds
  • 1 teaspoon orange rind, grated
  • 14 teaspoon nutmeg


  1. Steam the squash, turnip, carrots and onion over 1 inch of boiling water in a large skillet for 5 minutes or until tender.
  2. Drain. Combine the rest in a bowl. Drizzle over squash and toss to coat in a heated serving dish.
  3. A second option is to bake the squash in the oven [cut in half and bake at 325F until skin can be pierced with a fork.] along with the quartered onion [for a more Carmel taste]. Steam the other veggies as directed. Peel the squash and add to mix of onion, turnips and carrots.
  4. If using Butter buds simply sprinkle into the dressing. Use the equivalent of 2 tbsp butter. Read the container. Note if Vegetarian use acceptable substitute for you.
  5. I use Dumpling Squash. NOTE not all Vegetarians eat honey. If preparing this for others please be sure to confirm their diet.
