Roasting and honey make this a sweet side that pairs well with a verity of dishes. Prep time is the time it takes me to peel and cube the squash.
- 3 lbs butternut squash, cut into cubes (about 4 cups)
- cooking spray
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 teaspoons lime juice
- 1 1⁄4 teaspoons curry powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon chili powder
- Preheat oven to 425-degrees and line a jelly roll pan with foil. Lightly spray the foil with cooking oil spray.
- Spread butternut squash cubes in single layer on baking sheet and give a light spray of cooking oil. Bake for 10 minutes, gently toss the cubes and bake another 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile in measuring cup whisk together the olive oil, honey, lime juice, curry powder and chili powder.
- After 20 minutes of baking the squash, drizzle the curry glaze over the top and toss to coat the cubes well. Bake another 5 -10 minutes till golden being careful not to burn.
- Spoon into a serving bowl and enjoy!
Delicious! Loved the combination of the lime, honey and curry powder. Must admit that I have not cooked butternut squash before as I thought it would be too hard to peel and cut, but it wasn't. Will definitely make this dish again! Made for Spring PAC, April, 2012.
Very nice autumnal side dish. I chose to cook the squash for the first ten minutes and then added the sauce. I found my vegetable was cooking a little faster than I though and I didn't want to end up with broken, mushy cubes. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag game. :)
I used chipotle powder and the lime just put it over the top. And there's absolutely nothing wrong with eating squash for breakfast...right?
