Healthy Butternut Squash

Healthy Butternut Squash PinThis Healthy Butternut Squash is simple to make, nutritious and delicious. It only takes a couple minutes to prepare and an hour to cook. It adds a nice splash of color as a side dish to your Vegan Portobello Mushroom Steaks or BBQ Tempeh.

We sprinkled a little cayenne pepper and paprika over the squash to spice it up a bit and give it some more color. I also sprinkled a little salt on it, but Amelia didn’t think it needed salt so you might like it without (she gives me a hard time when I use salt).

This would also pair nicely with Sautéed Kale or a Side Salad for a hearty and filling lunch. You could also mash it up and pour some delicious Vegan Spaghetti Sauce over it.
