Golden Butternut Squash

Creamy and buttery butternut squash rice is the perfect simple side dish to any meal and is only four ingredients!  

Course Side Dish
Prep Time 2 minutes
Total Time 7 minutes
Servings 2


  • 1 cup Butternut squash soup I used Trader Joe's brand, Pacific foods or homemade should work
  • 2 cups frozen rice- precooked rice also should work
  • 2 tbs butter- or more I'm not here to judge
  • 1 tsp parsley flakes or fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper to tast


  1. In a skillet over medium heat, add in butter and rice until the butter melts and rice begins to cook. 

  2. Add butternut squash soup and cook until thickens and starts to brown. 

  3. Toss in dried or fresh parsley and serve.

Recipe Notes

This would probably be awesome topped with some parmesan cheese and bake in the oven for a few minutes until the cheese starts to golden (I wouldn't know since we don't do cheese or milk, I'm just assuming extra deliciousness).

When reheating leftovers add in extra butter, as reheating tends to dry out the rice.
