Ingredients

  • 1.5 lb butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt (not fine salt)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the butternut squash cubes in a large bowl. Add the olive oil and use your hands to mix it into the squash cubes.
  • Add the salt, garlic powder and chili powder. Mix well.
  • Arrange the coated butternut squash cubes in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Roast 15 minutes. Remove from oven, turn each cube to the other side and roast 15 more minutes, or until fork-tender. 
  • Serve the roasted butternut squash immediately. Keep leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Gently reheat in the microwave before serving.
