How to choose a good butternut squash for roasting

To choose good butternut squash for baking, look for a squash that is plump, unblemished, and that feels heavy in your hand. Store the butternut squash in a dry, cool, dark place (like a pantry or cupboard, avoid the fridge) for two weeks.

How to cut a butternut squash

For this roasted butternut recipe, we only use the top part of the squash – ie. the part that is not hollow. Here are the steps to cut the butternut:

  • Grip the butternut firmly with one hand and cut crosswise right above the plump, hollow part. Keep the hollow part for another recipe.
  • Peel the butternut squash with a vegetable peeler. The skin of the squash can be tough and might need several passes.
  • Then cut the squash in halves, vertically.
  • Laying the butternut halves flat, make thin half-moon slices.

How to bake butternut squash

The method for baking butternut squash is very simple and you get those nice caramelized edges. Here’s how we roast our butternut squash:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200ºC) and butter a baking dish.
  2. Peel and slice the butternut squash and marinate with garlic, garlic salt, pepper, paprika, oil, parmesan, and thyme.
  3. Arrange the butternut squash slices in a spiral into the baking pan.
  4. Roast the butternut squash for 30 to 35 minutes, or until cooked through. Easy!
