Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 small butternut squash
  • 12 ounces spicy Andouille sausage or similar sausage
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 cup vegetable broth or chicken broth
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes or whole tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cup frozen baby lima beans
  • 1 cup corn kernels, canned and drained or frozen, thawed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt and a dash of pepper, or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons sweet paprika
  • hot sauce, to taste

Preparation:

Carefully cut the squash in half and scoop out seeds. Peel with a vegetable peeler. Cut into 1-inch cubes and set aside.

In a large Dutch oven or kettle over medium heat, cook the sausage in olive oil until lightly browned. Add onion and celery and cook until onion is tender. Stir in flour until well blended. Stir in vegetable broth (or chicken broth), tomatoes, and lima beans. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 20 minutes.

Add squash and corn to the stew, along with salt, pepper, and paprika.

Cover and continue cooking for about 30 minutes, or until squash is tender. Add hot sauce and serve with cornbread.
Serves 4 to 6.
