It's fall and time for squash. I love butternut squash and paired with the sage and dried cherries it's so delicious. I use coconut oil because it doesn't go rancid when heated like other oils.

This is a simple way to roast butternut squash and the final result is big on flavor. We loved the sweet onion combined with the butternut squash. Sage adds a slightly earthy flavor to the side dish that's balanced by the dried cherries. The cherries almost taste like dried cranberries. The perfect fall side dish. It would be delicious at Thanksgiving dinner, too. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
