Have you ever purchased a butternut squash and wondered what to do with it?! One of the easiest ways to cook butternut squash is to roast it in the oven. One of the hardest things to do is prepare the butternut squash for roasting, but I have an easy trick for that. Ready?! Let’s do this!

First, I cut the butternut squash in half lengthwise. I then scoop out the seeds. Next I use a vegetable peeler to peel the hard outside skin/rind if the butternut squash. I then flip it over and start cutting half moon shapes. Ow cut the half moon shapes into cubes.

I put the cubed butternut squash into a bowl. Add the olive oil and seasoning. Toss to coat. On a foil lined cookie sheet, spread the butternut squash in an even layer.

Look at that beautifully roasted butternut squash. Roasting the butternut squash brings out its natural sugars. It is a beautiful vegetable to eat.

This is a delicious and quick side to add to any meal. You can also add more herbs and spices to make this your own. Enjoy!
