"Great and easy recipe! I used frozen yellow squash with seeds and added a handful of carrots. I used my smart stick instead of food processor. Delicious!"

"Had a few squash and some thyme leftover from Thanksgiving, and this was a perfect way to use them. I didn't bother to puree, just mashed them with a fork and added a little gravy flour and a a bit of cream. Delicious!"
