Hands down, my favorite squash of all time is butternut. Creamy, sweet, versatile and affordable, I just can’t get enough of it.
To prepare, start by peeling the squash with a high-quality, wide vegetable peeler. Next, cut off the wide bottom then cut it in half horizontally so that you expose the seeds. Carefully scrape them out with a spoon and either roast them or discard them.
When roasting butternut squash I like to cut them into bite-sized cubes but feel free to keep the squash in larger chunks if you prefer.
Next, it’s time to season with olive oil, salt, pepper, and spices. Curry powder is my go-to spice blend because it is made with a variety of warm spices including cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, coriander and more. Of course, the world is your oyster so feel free to season however you wish.
Next, roast the squash at 400 degrees until sweet, tender and caramelized – about 25-30 minutes.
Your fork is waiting.
