This chili roasted butternut squash is a delicious, healthy side dish. It’s a gluten-free, vegan recipe that may even convert a squash skeptic.
This time of year is full of so much good food. I love getting my winter farm share, but the volume of squash I get can be a bit overwhelming.
I’m not actually a big squash fan. But as with several other vegetables, I’ve found ways to enjoy it over the years. My favorite way to eat squash is in my squash chili. Somehow the chili seasoning makes it taste less squashy.
I recently discovered this even simpler preparation for squash. Topping it with chili flavors along with a little coconut sugar really makes it shine. I like to serve this chili roasted butternut squash over rice and beans. It’s such a simple, healthy, easy meal for a busy day. The leftovers are great for lunch, too!

- 1 tsp coconut sugar

Chop the butternut squash into ½ inch cubes. It’s important to cut the squash into uniform pieces so it cooks evenly.
