How to roast butternut squash

The Hangry Chickpea

Remove ends


Cut off the ends of your butternut squash, separate the fat part from the skinny half, then peel with a vegetable peeler.

Hint: use knife closest to the handle for max power.

Remove seeds


Cut the fat part in half, and remove seeds with a spoon and discard. Hands work too! 

Cut into planks...


Stand both halves onto a flat edge, and slice into planks.

Then rods, then cubes


Slice planks into rods, and rods into cubes. Use the flat edges to your advantage, avoid stabilizing squash on a non-flat edge. 

Add other ingredients


Oil with a high smoke point like grapeseed oil works well. Add salt and pepper for seasoning, plus thyme or rosemary if desired.

Bake at 350 F, 45-60 mins


Remove from oven halfway through to flip and let steam escape. Cook until edges start to brown & dry out slightly. Cubes will be soft like a baked potato.
