Butternut Squash Roasted

This simple Butternut Squash Recipe is combined with fresh parsley to give it an aromatic flavor. Butternut squash is a well-balanced food source and is considered to be a blood pressure-lowering vegetable. It boosts up the immunity as well as improves the hair and skin. It is a non-starchy vegetable and very low in carbohydrates.

It is easy to use this versatile vegetable (but botanically it is a fruit) in many ways, like roasted, toasted, sautéed, or puréed. You can use it instead of mashed potatoes or together with mashed potatoes, which gives it another great flavor. This quality makes it such a popular ingredient for lots of savory dishes.

Butternut Squash, also known as Butternut Pumpkin in Australia, is a super healthy and nutritious (botanically a fruit, but in the kitchen used as a) vegetable. It has excellent health benefits and has many nutrients like vitamins A, C, magnesium, and potassium.

Tip: Use parchment paper to prevent the Butternut Squash from sticking on the baking tray. In this way, the baking tray is much easier to clean.

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 4 tbsp parsley, chopped

  2. Combine the butternut squash with all of the remaining ingredients and toss.
  3. Spread over the baking tray and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the butternut squash is tender and lightly browned. Serve the roasted Butternut Squash immediately.
