Sweet Meat squash has silver-gray skin that makes it very unusual looking squash. It is good up to 6 months in a cool, dry place after autumn harvest. This squash is especially rich in dietary fiber, vitamin C, beta-carotene, and some minerals. A cup of cooked squash contains only 75-80 Calories.

Meat Squash Soup:

To prepare you will need a sharp knife, a  hard board and some patience.
Wash your squash really well. Slice it into 6-8 wedges depending on the size of the squash. Pull seeds and pulpy material out, and place it on the roasting pan. Add some water into that pan (maybe 0.5 cup) just enough to keep it steaming. Bake it at 375 degrees for 30 minutes, then decrease the temperature to 350 degrees and bake it for an hour or until the flesh is very tender. (Check it as soon as 45 minutes, depending on the size of the wedges it could be done earlier)
When done, remove the flesh from the rind and puree it in a food processor adding some bullion (I used vegetable) or heavy cream (remember: it is heavy in calories). Salt and pepper to your taste. Fry a sliced onion on a skillet till beautiful golden. Dress your pureed soup with a little golden onion and 1tbs of light-sour cream and enjoy.
