How to Prepare Butternut Squash

First things first you are going to need a sharp large knife. I usually cut it in half and then remove the peel with the knife. Scoop out the insides containing the seeds with a spoon. If you can eat seeds don’t compost them. Roasted butternut squash seeds make for a very delicious snack. Check out my recipe on how to make roasted pumpkin seeds. The same method applies to the seeds of butternut squash.

Butternut squashes vary greatly in size, especially if you pick your own at a farm or shop at the farmers market. For a large baking sheet, I used one small squash which was approximately 5 cups once cut into cubes. If you have a large one simply use half of it. You can either store the rest of it in the fridge or cut it all into small cubes while you are already at it. Try my super delicious butternut squash soup recipe with the leftovers.

This rosemary garlic roasted butternut squash recipe is very simple. Once you cut the squash into small pieces, simply place them on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, minced garlic, fresh rosemary, and season it. You will end up with a delicious side dish that is perfect for the holiday season.
