RECIPE: Roasted Butternut Squash (with Cranberries and Goat Cheese)

This is a tried and true recipe that we love to have in our home - especially on cooler fall & winter nights. For some reason, butternut squash tastes better to me when it's cooler outdoors! Endre Barath, Jr. asked for a tried and true recipe using butternut squash so, his request became my post! 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 butternut squash (about 2.5 lbs)
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1/3 cup crumbled GOAT cheese
  • Parsley to garnish

 

DIRECTIONS:

Pre-heat the oven to 400º. Start by peeling, remove the seeds and cutting butternut squash into cubes. In a medium size bowl, add diced squash and mix with olive oil, cinnamon, salt and pepper.

Prepare a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper and spread butternut squash over it and put in the oven for 30 minutes.

 

After 30 minutes, add cranberries and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes. Remove tray from the oven when the cranberries have burst slightly.

 

Then spread the honey over the squash and cranberries and make sure everything gets tossed in it. Sprinkle goat cheese over the squash and cranberries; sprinkle a few chopped parsley leaves on top to garnish.

Serve & ENJOY!

Wow, that does sound delicious. The only thing I don't like about butternut squash is the peeling and cutting part. It's not the easiest thing to do.

Oh my gosh, I feel the same way, Kat Palmiotti! Everytime I cut one up (and de-seed it!), I think that I'm going to research to see if there is a method to make that task easier. It's a chore!

I'm a huge goat cheese fan, Charles Ross - eXp Realty LLC - it turns any dish into a 'comfort' dish!! I hope you give it a try.

Sounds delicious. I take an Acorn Squash, cut it in half, turn it upside down and bake for 45 minutes. Then right side up put in a tablespoon or a tad more of butter, a couple of tablespoons of brown sugar and bake 15 minutes. The squash is almost a desert.

Wintertime is definitely soup time in my house, Debe! I LOVE roasted butternut squash, just made a big pot of creamy yumminess the other day. I can't add dairy, but use some nutritional yeast instead, it does the trick.

Okay, I'm in, Leanne Smith - what time is dinner?!! I think anything with brown sugar is amazing and I am going to grab an acorn squash the next time I'm at the grocer. THANK YOU!

Carol Williams, wait until you see the butternut squash soup recipe. I'm sure you can cut that way down for a couple of servings OR make it for guests OR freeze it! It's fun to make and it really is delicious!

Oh, Andrea Bedard, you'll have to check out my post I just published - butternut squash soup - it is wonderful! I tried to make it vegan and aside from the bone broth (which you can substitute vegetable broth), it's vegan. 

We also love cooking soup in the fall & winter. I have a butternut squash in my fridge now to cook some tomorrow!
