Apple Soaked Roasted Butternut Squash

Posted on Nov 17 2011 - 2:43am by Mike Lieberman
    Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Butternut squash
  • 2-3 apples of your juice (I prefer Granny Smith) or fresh apple juice
  • 1 teaspoon of oil (I prefer coconut)
  • Optional: Ground cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves
    How to make:

  • Cut butternut squash into cubes and put into bowl.
  • If you are using apple juice, pour that into the bowl or cut up the apples and either juice or blend them down. I’d recommend juicing them.
  • Add the oil, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves if you are using.
  • Pour over the butternut squash to submberge it.
  • Let soak for 30-45 minutes.
  • Put in oven at 375-400 degrees for 30 minutes.
  • Mix them around and put back in oven for another 15-20 until desired tenderness.

    Yum. Gonna try this soon. 🙂
    Suggestions for joellesgarden: peel butternut squash with your potato peeler. To cut the only tip I have is to make sure your knife is sharp.

    You can use a vegetable peeler (a really good one) to get the skin off.
