There are lots of things to love about fall! The beautiful autumn leaf colors, the cool temperature, and most importantly… the FOOD of course! This one is a simple autumn recipe: Roasted butternut squash.
- 1 medium squash
- 1 tbsp of butter, melted (or coconut oil)
- Brown sugar (optional)
0. Preheat oven to 400°F. 1. Cut squash in half length wise. I find the easy way to do this is to cut off a tiny bit from the bottom of the squash in an even slice so that you can sit it down first, and then cut the squash in half length wise.
2. Place squash in a baking pan, and rub with melted butter (or melted coconut oil if you are dairy-free). 3. Sprinkle the cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and brown sugar (optional). (If you forget this step you can add it at the end also.) 4. Bake in the preheated oven for an hour. Be warned though, depending on the size of your butternut squash, it may take less or more time to cook thoroughly (could be up to 1.5 hours!)
