A new season is upon us, and with that comes a whole ton of flavor profiles that we haven’t really visited since last November. I was so excited to see butternut squash grace its way into my local Safeway I couldn’t wait to start using all the seasonal produce and incorporating those classic fall flavors.
If butternut squash doesn’t scream Fall to you, I don’t know what will! Ok, ok, maybe a pumpkin spice latte – but that is so not my jam, so let’s carry on shall we? Back to the fab butternut squash. It’s an excellent source of Vitamin A, which supports vision and cell growth, and good source of Vitamin C, Potassium and Fiber. This lovely winter squash is a versatile fruit (yes, one of those tricksters – I tell you!) that can be prepared in many different ways. One of my favorites is to roast them in the oven!
Classic fall seasonings marrying together to create the most delicious roasted butternut squash – um yes! And let’s not even talk about the happiness in my soul from the aroma that fills my kitchen when these babies are roasting in the oven. Perfectly caramelized and crisp on the outside, melt in your mouth creamy goodness on the inside with a touch of toasted crunch that will make you want to hoard these bad boys all to yourself (I might be talking from experience) – COUNT ME IN!
