Most of us are still suffering from food fatigue. Now that the holiday cookies, eggnog and candy canes are out of the way, it’s time to move on to the New Year and healthier fare. Consider jump starting 2019 with this versatile, tasty and nutritious vegetable: butternut squash.
Cube ’em, Oil ’em, Roast ’em
For simple roasting, put the chunks in a bowl and anoint them with oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Spread evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet and place squash in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes. Turn cubes with spatula and leave for another 15-20 minutes or till crispy and caramelized on the exterior and creamy on the inside. That’s it! (Note: if using frozen chunks, place squash on a pre-heated baking sheet and up the oven to 450 degrees for about 20 minutes.)
There are so many ways to enjoy this versatile winter squash. Crazy good . . . and good for you!
