Best butternut squash roasting method?
I've always done a simple roasting with a bit of maple syrup and/or sage. Other more creative ideas?
What method do you use? What is "simple?"
The last time I roasted butternut, I peeled it with a vegetable peeler, then cut it up into cubes. Tossed with some olive oil, kosher salt, black pepper; and partway through added some garlic and sage.
Sometimes I leave it in halves, roasted, then scoop out. It depends on how I want it served. If I want caramelized edges, then I cube it.
Other seasonings to try are allspice and cardamom.
Throw in some toasted hazelnuts, or shaved parmesan/asiago/romano.
Simple is best. I toss mine in oil and add crushed coriander, cumin and pepper before roasting
Butternut is my least favorite winter squash because I think it lacks flavor compared to other winter squashes. Would you consider trying butter Cup or Kabocha squash? Delicatas have nice flavor, too.
