Simply seasoned, basic roasted butternut squash enhances the natural flavors for a healthy and tasty side dish, or an addition to other dishes.
Recipe type: Side dish, Vegetable
  • One butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into ½ inch cubes
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F and lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil by using a spritzer or pouring on a small amount (1/2-1 t) and spreading it in a thin layer.
  2. Place the squash cubes on the baking sheet and spritz or drizzle with another half to one tablespoon of olive oil (depending on the size of your squash - you want enough to lightly coat the cubes), sprinkle with kosher salt (about ½ t for every 2 cups of squash) and freshly ground pepper. Toss to coat and spread into a single layer.
  3. Roast for 15 minutes, then gently toss and again spread into a single layer.
  4. Roast for another 10-15 minutes, or until tender.
