Miso Butter Squash Recipe from Miss Kim

Miso Butter Squash
Our Miso Butter Squash is a guest favorite to rave about. A savory, buttery squash that melts in your mouth, it truly is one of the reasons we can say food is the answer to everything. When the US Army was stationed in Korea after the war, butter became more readily available and Koreans soon discovered the wonderful marriage of butter and soy. It’s good on everything! The versatile recipe below can be used with any of your favorite vegetables for a easy and delicious meal everyone will love.
