Maple Glazed Butternut Squash & Link to New Chanukah Shiur


This fast, easy and yummy recipe yields winning results every time.

I actually feel a bit funny sharing a “recipe” that has four ingredients; like, that’s it, how could it be so easy and fast?!  But for those of you who enjoy new ways to prepare vegetables, and who want quick dishes that are fast to throw together and delicious to eat – this one’s for you.

For those serving Thanksgiving dinner, this would be a really nice addition to the Thanksgiving meal.  And for those who are not, this is a lovely side dish for any time.  It’s also versatile because it can be served alongside poultry or meat at a meat meal, or alongside fish at a parve (or dairy) meal.

Maple Glazed Butternut Squash

Pre-heat the oven to 425*. 

Place chunks of raw, peeled butternut squash into a 9×13 foil pan.  Note that for ease of preparation, I buy – and recommend using – already peeled and cut butternut squash.

Over the chunks of squash, drizzle a generous drizzle of pure maple syrup and light-tasting olive oil (don’t be too skimpy with either the maple syrup or the oil).  Sprinkle a dusting of cinnamon over the dressed squash.

That’s it!  Four ingredients and your squash is now oven ready 🙂

Roast the squash, uncovered, for about 1 hour, till the squash is fork tender and beginning to caramelize.  Stir as necessary mid way through roasting (don’t leave the house and come back in an hour!).  If your oven is very hot, and the edges are starting to darken, turn the oven down as necessary.

Note: Frozen squash cubes are not recommended for this recipe, as they will become very mushy during roasting.
