My new favorite way to make butternut squash! I was recently craving something sweet and salty. Instead of snacking on something I would later regret, I added the flavors to my veggies and it was a huge hit!

Ingredients

  • 1-2 lb
    butternut squash, cubed
  • 2-3 Tbsp
    olive oil
  • 2 pinch
    red pepper flakes (adjust to taste)
  • 1/4 c
    honey
  • 1 pinch
    salt & pepper (adjust to taste)

How to Make Sweet and Spicy Butternut Squash

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees

    Costco sells organic cubed butternut squash. I use it all the time and its a great time saver.
  2. Place cubed squash in your roasting pan and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for about 15 min, then remove from oven to add honey and red pepper. Give a toss and return to oven until tender. (If you prefer a bolder flavor, add more honey and red pepper after about 10 minutes)
  3. Roasting time will vary, depending on what size pan you have and how much is in it. My pan was a 9x9 roaster, so it took about 35-40 minutes to cook. If were in a larger pan and more spread out, it would have cooked a little faster. Check periodically to see if the squash is tender.
