Roasting a Butternut Squash

bn puree

I like easy. And tasty. And good for you. But easy is key.

It doesn’t get any easier than this.

Some people avoid butternut squash because it seems daunting. That couldn’t be further from the truth! It’s one of the easiest veggies to prepare, in 1-2-3…

1. Put the squash on a lined sheet and puncture 5-6 times.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA





2. Roast at 400 until browning.






3.  Flip it every 30 min. It takes 1.5-2 hours. It’s done when a fork punctures the squash easily.


Yep, that’s it.  Then you can easily cut it open, scoop the seeds and enjoy! Perfect in a soup, or we tend to do a butternut puree with 2 Tablespoons maple syrup and 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice.

I told you it was easy!

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.
