Elegant Thanksgiving Squash Side Dish
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 butternut squash - peeled, seeded, and cubed
  • 2 Gala apples, cored and cubed, or more to taste
  • 1 cup water, or more as needed
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1/2 cup cranberry juice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon mulling spices
  • 1 1/4 cups raisins
  • 8 ounces chevre (soft goat cheese), crumbled


  1. Melt butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook and stir onion in hot butter until translucent and soft, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir butternut squash, apples, and 1 cup water into onion mixture. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer until apples are tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Pour squash mixture into a blender no more than half full. Cover and hold lid down; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until smooth. Transfer puree to a bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Stir wine, cranberry juice, and 1/2 cup water together in a saucepan. Bring wine mixture to a boil; add mulling spices, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 2 minutes. Add raisins and simmer until plumped, 5 to 10 minutes. Drain and discard wine mixture.
  4. Stir raisins into squash puree and top with goat cheese.
