Spicy Sweet Roasted Butternut Squash

Category: Peppers

 Ingredients List

  • one large butternut squash
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • salt to taste


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Peel and cube butternut squash. (Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any personal injuries or anxiety attacks.)

2. Dump butternut squash cubes onto a large, rimmed sheet tray.

3. In a small bowl, mix together olive oil, syrup, cinnamon, cayenne and salt. Pour over cubed squash and toss with your hands to coat. Spread out squash so that it is in an even layer.

4. Bake for 15-30 minutes, stirring halfway through. Cooking time will depend on how crowded your squash is and how big your cubes are. You want the squash to be fork tender (stick a fork in--it comes right back out), but not mushy.

5. Enjoy as a side dish or on a leafy green salad.
