Butternut Squash Side Dish Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 1 medium butternut squash (about 2 pounds)
  2. 2 tablespoons coconut oil, plus more for the pan
  3. 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  4. 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus more for garnish
  5. 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  6. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  7. Coarse sea salt, for garnish

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F and grease a rimmed baking sheet.
  2. Peel the squash and slice it in half lengthwise. Remove the seeds and cut into 1-inch cubes (you should have about 6 cups).
  3. In a large bowl, combine the melted oil, coconut sugar, cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Pour the melted oil mixture over the squash and toss to coat.
  4. Place the squash on the greased baking sheet and bake for 40 to 50 minutes, tossing every 15 minutes or so to avoid burning, until caramelized and fork-tender.
  5. Garnish with additional cinnamon and coarse sea salt. Serve immediately.
