Roasted Butternut Squash and Sweet Potatoes

Not so long ago, I wasn’t familiar with butternut squash. Growing up, they were never served at our family table. I was pleasantly surprised to find that paired with sweet potatoes and spices, roasted butternut squash makes the perfect side dish.

After a little research, I learned that not only are they delicious and but also unbelievably nutritious. Butternut squash has no saturated fats or cholesterol, is an amazing source of fiber, phyto-nutrients, Vitamin A and B-complex vitamins.

After working with a couple of squashes, I learned that the easiest way to peel a butternut squash is to not fight with it. Poke a couple of holes in your squash, then microwave for 2-3 minutes, rotating halfway through. It will be much easier to peel and slice. Be careful not to microwave your squash any longer than needed.

This recipe makes enough for two meals. Serve the first half as a side dish one night, and use the second half to make our Roasted Butternut Squash Soup for another meal.
