Learn the best way to roast butternut squash and you can enjoy a healthy, delicious side all fall and winter long.
Often the simplest recipes are the best. Roasted butternut squash is an example. I typically peel & dice the top, skinny half of my butternut squash. But the rounder bottom half is full of seeds and not worth the trouble to de-seed, peel and chop this part of the squash. Instead, I save the bottom half and cut into 2 pieces, scoop out the seeds and roast! Here's my recipe, below (naturally Paleo & Gluten Free):
Super Simple Butternut Squash
- 2 butternut squash, top half removed
- Preheat oven to 425ºF.
- Rub the squash flesh with 1-2tsp fat of choice: olive oil, coconut oil or butter (toasted sesame oil is also nice!)
- Sprinkle w/ salt & pepper.
- Bake ~40 min or until squash is tender and pierces easily with a fork.
