Sara Moulton’s Shredded Butternut Squash with Sunsweet Amaz!n Prunes and pistachios is an easy side with sweet & tangy flavor.
1 medium butternut squash (1 ½ pounds) 2 medium shallots ¹⁄3 cup shelled natural pistachios 3 large Sunsweet Amaz!n™ Prunes 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 4 large mint leaves 1 to 1 ½ tablespoons fresh lemon juice Kosher salt Cayenne pepper

1. Peel the butternut squash and cut it into pieces that will fit into the feeding tube of a food processor. Fit the processor with the shredding disc and shred the squash (about 3 ½ cups). Finely chop the shallots (about ¹⁄3 cups); coarsely chop the pistachios (about ¹⁄3 cup): and coarsely chop the prunes (about ¼ cup).

2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat until hot. Add the shallots and cook for 1 minute, stirring. Add the butternut squash, turn up the heat to medium high, and cook for 3 minutes, stirring, until the squash is tender. The mixture will become soft, like a purée. Shred the mint (about 2 teaspoons). Stir in the pistachios, prunes, mint, and lemon juice. Add salt and cayenne to taste.
