There’s something about the shape of butternut squash that makes it a fun photographic subject. It has smooth skin and sensuous curves. And I like the interplay of light and shadow when shooting a grouping of them. It’s a great vegetable for some abstract, close-up play as well.
Oh, and did I mention that it’s also tasty? It’s delicious baked or grilled, and it makes a phenomenal soup!
Yup, I’m nuts about it for many reasons.
I won’t lie, this is one of my least favorite vegetables. I have yet to find a way to prepare it that I find tasty.
Yes, I know about cheese sauce, but the point is to eat a healthy vegetable, isn’t it? If you take cauliflower and smother it in high-fat, high-cholesterol cheese sauce, what’s the point? To disguise the taste of the cauliflower by making it taste like cheese, right?
I have a better idea: I’ll just skip the cauliflower and eat some cheese!
