Roasted vegetables are probably my favorite side dish and I recently began adding butternut squash to the rotation on a pretty regular basis. It's a great lower carb option that I like to use instead of potatoes. While you can roast it with almost any spice blend, I think it pairs perfectly with cinnamon and nutmeg. If you aren't watching carbs, you could add maple syrup or brown sugar as well.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Carefully peel and chop the squash into 1 inch cubes.

Toss with olive oil, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and pepper.

Lay out in one single layer on a baking sheet. I cover mine in foil for easier clean up. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until squash is tender. Taste and season as needed.

I've been eating low carb-Keto for the last month and feel great. Tonight I had leftover baked chicken and wanted something fresh to serve with it. I had purchased a butternut squash because they were on sale....This fit the bill! Very yummy! I also used home made keto maple syrup drizzled on! Better than sweet potatoes! Thank you!
