How to roast butternut squash

To make this roasted butternut squash recipe, simply cut the butternut squash in any shape (I prefer discs), optionally adding any other vegetables and a tablespoon of olive oil and a big garlic head to add aroma.

How to season butternut squash

In your baking tray, add your preferred fresh herbs and you’ve got it!

My favorite seasoning for roasted or baked butternut squash is thyme. Also, Rosemary works beautifully. I think they combine very well with the sweetness of the butternut squash. A great addition to this roast would be Sweet potatoes.

How long does butternut squash take to cook

Forty to fifty five minutes at 400ºF (200ºC) will do it.

Roasted Butternut Squash is extremely versatile

This recipe is great alone as a starter, as a snack, side dish, or as a base for other recipes, such as a creamy soup.

I like making a creamy soup just blending the roasted butternut squash in a mixer adding some sugar-free vegetable milk.

I use these cooked cubes also as a topping when making a gourmet pizza, combined with caramelized red onions and fresh rucola.
