Honey Glazed Roasted Butternut Squash, Apples and Walnuts

Posted on Mar 31 2011 - 2:09am by Mike Lieberman

Butternut squash are still readily available at the Farmers Markets. Since Beth Buczynski of EcosphericBlog was happy that I posted a non-soup recipe when I made the roasted butternut squash fries, I’m posting another non-soup recipe.

    Here’s what you’ll need:
  • 1/2 butternut squash
  • 2 apples (one sweet and one sour)
  • Handful of walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons of raw honey
  • tablespoon of olive oil
  • teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • dash of sea salt
    How to make:
  • Cut and cube the butternut squash and apples
  • Place in oven at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes
  • Put the walnuts into a small bowl
  • Pour honey, olive oil, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt over walnuts and stir
  • After 20 minutes, mix up the squash and apples and roast for another 15 minutes
  • Remove squash and apples and put into a bowl
  • Top with walnut mixture and stir
  • Serve it up

    This sounds wonderful – I love butternut squash and honey roasted anything makes it even better! I have Honey Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Honey Roasted Pear Salad with Goat Cheese on my site if you want to try it out. I’ll be trying this recipe for sure! :)

    It looks so good, I do similar but haven’t added apples. Next batch, apples go in.

    Get the apples in there. Lemme know how it turns out.

    That looks so, so good.

    Great recipe! We grew butternut squash last year, and maybe we were lucky, maybe it was a good year, but we still have some in the root cellar. We mostly made soup, and were sick of it by December, so maybe that was part of the problem. I’ll have to try this soon.

    BTW- if you have some dirt on the ground, butternut squash are almost ridiculously easy to grow. We sowed a few mounds between the tomatoes and okra in our little community garden plot, and we had maybe 15-18 squash in a 10×15 area. Someone helped themself to a bunch of them, so that’s sort of an estimate- but we thought of it as our contribution to ending hunger in the Twin Cities. Not sure if they’ll grow like this in LA- but the dirt here grows ‘em like crazy.

    Nice. Thanks for the tip.

  • Rhonda

    Well, yum! Butternut squash is one of my all time favorites. Super easy to grow, and it stores so well, too. We grow it on a heavy trellis, or a tunnel-which is fun ;-)

    I recently made a whole wheat lasagna with pureed butternut squash and corn. I used various soft cheeses and it was killer.

  • Calicofatquarter

    I also use it in place of pumkin for pie. Tastes better than pumpkin.

  • http://www.UrbanOrganicGardener.com Mike Lieberman

    A tunnel?! That definitely sounds interesting.

  • http://www.UrbanOrganicGardener.com Mike Lieberman

    Like the substitution idea. Will have to try that.

  • Lena

    When I was in London the last time, I was at Jamie Oliver’s Restaurant, the “Fifteen” and at a Risotto with Butternut squash – yummy :)

  • http://www.UrbanOrganicGardener.com Mike Lieberman

    That sounds pretty damned good.

  • Stephanie

    Making this recipe tonight! Can’t wait to see how it turns out.

  • WendyinCA

    Okay, this looks seriously mouth-watering. Inspiring, too–I went out today and bought Butternut Squash seeds! Thanks for the idea, Mike!:)

    Word. Lemme know how you likes.

  • http://www.UrbanOrganicGardener.com Mike Lieberman

    That’s what’s up. Now you gotta grow a walnut tree too ;-)

  • WendyinCA

    Not a bad idea!;) I have seen them growing along I-5, come to think of it.

    We just started our butternut squash seeds last week, one is like the jolly green giant already! They are so fun to watch growing, almost as fun as eating! Thanks for sharing such a fantastic recipe!

  • http://www.UrbanOrganicGardener.com Mike Lieberman

    Thanks. Now you got me wanting to see if I can grow some on my balcony. Not sure I could with the 5-gallon containers and limited sun. Hm….

  • Stephanie

    It turned out wonderful! Our friends loved it as well. I’m going to have to make a lot more next time.

  • http://www.UrbanOrganicGardener.com Mike Lieberman

    For real. You know I’d some of it too.

  • Kahoelzl

    I do something similar but I use maple syrup (I’m in Canada), pecans and dried cranberries. This would be a nice variation

  • http://www.UrbanOrganicGardener.com Mike Lieberman

    Ah yes maple syrup would be nice too.

    I have been looking for a recipe with squash in phylo. My grandma made phylo strudel with diced hubbard squash it was honey sweet and so good. I have losted the recipe with her. I remember her roasting the 1/2 shell of squash in oven. That is all other then her rolling it in her stretched dough and bake it. The squash was so tasty. If some one can send me any idea pleas do. Thank you Cindy
