Roasted Butternut Squash

30 Sep

Roasting squash is one of those dishes that are super easy to make, but has great flavor. Butternut squash is a very good source of Vitamin A and Vitamin C. We all know vitamin C is great for our immune system. Vitamin A is a retinol that is essential in the photo receptor of our eyes. For those that aspire to be fighter jet pilot or retain your good vision for a couple more years eat your butternut squash!

This slim version of roasting butternut squash gives you all the sweet natural flavor without negating any health benefits by soaking them in butter and extra sugar.


1 2lbs butternut squash peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp olive oil

(Yes that is it)

1. Set your oven to 425 F.

2. Toss the butternut squash cubes with the cinommon and olive oil.

3. Baked in a covered dish for 30 minuets and serve.

This would make a great side for the Thanksgiving dinners.
