  • 1 butternut squash
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • sea or kosher salt
  • other seasonings (optional -- see note above)


  • Using my secret tip above, separate the round bottom half from the straighter top half and cut it in half to scoop out the seeds. Peel both halves then cut into 1" cubes.
  • Drizzle the squash with olive oil and toss to coat.
  • Spread in an even layer on a sheet pan.
  • Sprinkle with salt and any other seasonings you'd like.
  • Roast at 400° for about 30-40 minutes until squash is tender and caramelized on the outer surfaces.
