Are you intimidated by butternut squash? I used to be. I mean, what exactly are you supposed to do with it? My mom used to cut them in half, bake them, and then drown them in butter and brown sugar. Yum, but yeah…..no! Try this roasted butternut squash recipe and you’ll never be intimidated again!
My all-time favorite way to prepare any squash, especially winter squashes, is roasting. Butternut squash is so perfectly suited for roasting and you don’t need to do anything at all to enhance it’s natural flavor. Dice it up, mist it with some olive oil, crank a couple of turns of sea salt, and toss it in a hot oven. You can eat it just like that or do any number of things with it. Turn it into a soup. Toss it in a salad. Stir it into some quinoa. The possibilites are endless. My favorite way to enjoy it is straight out of the oven in a nice bowl all by itself.
