About this Recipe

By: Caitlin Greene

I love all types of squash from butternut squash, acorn squash, honeynut squash to kabocha squash, there are just so many varieties to them! I love the hint of sweetness from them and how filling they are. Not only can you make them as a savory dish, but also in baked goods. They are the perfect fall and winter veggies. I eat them so often from fall to winter and have not gotten tired of them yet.

All you need to make these Easy Roasted Honeynut Squash are:
-some honeynut squashes
-olive oil
-maple syrup
-salt and pepper

How do you make these Roasted Honeynut Squash?
First, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Next, cut the butternut squashes in half and remove the seeds. Season with ghee, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Bake for 20 minutes

Once ready, drizzle the squash with maple syrup. To finish, top with your desired toppings or eat as is. I topped one with greens, smoked salmon, a soft boiled egg, and dill. For the other, I topped with roasted chicken, bacon, apples, Brussel Sprouts, pecans, dried cranberries and drizzled with a maple tahini sauce.
