Ready to fill your home with the most delicious aromas of fall? There are few vegetable side dishes that my children will happily devour, but this dish is one exception. Roasted Butternut Squash with rosemary, caramelized onion and just a touch of heat and spice will be a family favorite.
If you’ve ever bought a whole butternut squash then you know how hard they are to cut! As a busy mom of four, I don’t have the time or patience to prepare the squash, so I purchase butternut squash that is already peeled and cubed. My local grocer provides 32oz. containers in the produce section. It’s so worth the little bit of extra cost.
Roasted Butternut Squash
6 cups peeled, seeded, cubed Butternut Squash
1 medium Vidalia Onion sliced thin
1.5 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
1/4 cup light olive oil
1.5 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3/4 teaspoon curry powder
2 dashes nutmeg
Preheat oven to 400. Line a lipped cookie sheet pan with non-stick foil. Spread butternut squash and sliced onion evenly in the pan. Sprinkle with rosemary and the remaining ingredients. Use your hands to toss and coat the squash well. Roast for 30 minutes or until fork tender, stirring half way through. Serves 8.
Roasted butternut squash is amazing paired with roasted turkey, beef, chicken or pork loin. It makes a great holiday dinner side dish. For more recipes check out the Kim’s Kitchen tab up top.
