Butternut squash took much longer than 15 minutes to become sift, meanwhile, the green beans got mushy, and the eggplant was bitter. Not a good recipe.
Diced butternut squash usually takes 15-20 minutes to boil, typical green beans in the range of 10-15 minutes, and eggplant from 7-10 minutes.
There are several types of varieties for green beans, which may affect the cooking time. French green beans for example takes less time than typical provider green beans.
Eggplant bitterness can be a result of the state it is in when cooked. Eggplants are less bitter when the skin is shiny and firm and seeds are small.
Vegetable ripeness, cut size, range temperature deviations, pots used, etc are all factors that can adjust cooking times.
I’ve added these tips into the blog page.
Those are really good points!
