    1. 1
      preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
    2. 2
      peel and cube the butternut squash (this step disappears if you can buy it already peeled and cut either in half or cubed).
    3. 3
      toss the squash in a bowl with 1/2 - 1 Tbsp oil (I use light olive oil or Enova), 1 tsp ground cinnamon and 1 - 2 tsp maple syrup.
    4. 4
      pour everything into a baking pan and roast until done - about 30 - 40 minutes. If you have the oven on lower it will, obviously, just take a little longer! When it's done it is soft and steamy and sweet. You can also mash this, if you like, adding a little margarine or butter to taste. Once you try this, you can decide if you want to use another teaspoons of maple syrup. If you don't have syrup, brown sugar (or lite brown sugar) would work too. I have not tried the new Spenda Brown sugar yet.

      Delicious way to eat butternut squash. The only problem I had was that cutting the rind off of the squash was a struggle {and took me about 15 minutes to cut up}. Maybe next time I'll buy the squash already cut up. You don't really taste the maple flavoring and it isn't too sweet. This is a good autumn side dish. Reminds me of sweet potatoes or pumpkins.

      We really enjoyed this tasty dish Saralaya. Roasting the squash brought out its natural sweet flavor. The squash was tender and very flavorful. Perfectly cooked and delicious to eat. We really enjoyed the addition of the maple syrup. Thank ;you for sharing a recipe that I| will make again and again. Made for Spring Pac/2012

      It was very good and I didn't even use real maple syrup. Next time I will use the real maple syrup ande I bet it will be awesome! I also used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. Yummy!
