Creamy Squash with Basil is a delightful and flavorful dish that combines the rich, velvety texture of squash with the vibrant aroma of fresh basil. It's a perfect choice for those seeking a comforting yet refreshing meal.
The star of this dish is the squash, which can be any variety you prefer. I used the normal one which is widely available here in the Philippines. I boiled the squash until it becomes tender and easy to blend. The natural sweetness of the squash lends a luscious quality to the creamy base of the dish.
To create the creamy texture, the cooked squash is pureed until smooth and then combined with chicken broth and cream for that comforting texture we're looking for.
The real magic happens when the creamy squash is infused with fresh basil. Basil adds a delightful herbal note that complements the sweetness of the squash. It brings a burst of aromatic freshness and brightens up the entire dish. The basil can be finely chopped and stirred into the creamy mixture or used as a garnish, allowing its flavors to meld beautifully with the squash.

I highly recommend the Kaisa Villa Food Processor that I used in this video. I use is for soups, puree, quick grinding of vegetables, fruit shakes and many more. I like that it's easy to use and clean at the same time. If you're interested, you can order the Kaisa Villa Food Processor here.
