I am a simple cook and I love the ease of making butternut squash.

Squash is rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, beta carotene, magnesium, iron, calcium and other important anti-inflammatory and antioxidant nutrients. This nutrient dense superfood is a great alternative to yams or sweet potatoes if you’re looking to add more variety to your diet.


  • 1 organic, whole butternut squash, peeled, seeds removed and cut into 1-inch size cubes
  • 3 tablespoons of organic coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 2 cloves organic garlic, smashed
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a large bowl, toss butternut squash with coconut oil, salt, pepper, sage and garlic.

Arrange on a baking/cookie sheet.

Roast in oven for 30-35 minutes, or until lightly browned and fork tender.

Remove and allow to cool before serving.

Makes 4 servings.
