Today’s recipe isn’t quite a recipe – it’s a useful trick in the kitchen. On a paleo/primal diet, it’s difficult to find appropriate thickeners for sauces and soups. Today, your problem is solved! Try these squash thickener cubes for easy thickening of most recipes.
Note: this trick won’t work very well with egg-based emulsions sauces like Hollandaise, but works very well with stock-based sauces and soups.
- 2lbs squash (you can make a smaller or larger batch if necessary – use as much squash as you need)
- Ice cube trays
- Steam or microwave (if necessary) the squash. You want to use a cooking method that is low in moisture, so don’t boil it.
- Puree the squash.
- Fill the ice cube trays with your pureed squash.
- Use the cubes to thicken anything you’d like. Use as many cubes as necessary to achieve your desired texture.
