Roasted Butternut Squash

Since I spend about 75% of my waking hours in leggings (85% if you count their close relatives jeggings and yoga pants), every now and then I appreciate the opportunity to get a little fancy. Now, I’m not saying that I’m going to be strutting about in a ballgown anytime soon (unless you are throwing a ball and looking for an extra guest?), but every now and then, I do enjoy adding a little sparkle to my routine. The same can be said for recipes. Today’s Roasted Butternut Squash takes an easy weeknight side—roasted butternut squash cubes—and transforms it into a dish that’s worthy of a special occasion, be it a holiday table or dinner at home with someone you love. Cubes of butternut squash roasted with maple syrup and cinnamon until caramelized and tender, then tossed with fresh rosemary, it’s elegant to eat and easy to prepare. My kind of side!

We eat roasted vegetables several nights a week at home, and my default method to cook them is olive oil, salt, and pepper. 400 degrees F. 20(ish) minutes. Done and done.

It’s standard. It’s effective. It doesn’t require much effort.

Basically, it’s the yoga pants of roasted vegetable recipes. (more…)
