  • 3 lb butternut squash
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • Fresh parsley to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

  2. Place butternut squash on a cutting board and using a vegetable peeler, peel your butternut squash.
  3. Once it’s peeled, cut your butternut squash in half and remove the seed. (more info about cutting a butternut squash, above on the post.)
  4. Dice your butternut squash into bite-sized pieces roughly the same size so that they bake evenly.
  5. Place butternut squash on the prepared baking sheet and drizzle on olive oil and season with salt, pepper and paprika.
  6. Toss with your hands and then place in oven.
  7. Roast for 15-20 minutes. Time will depend on the size of the butternut squash cubes.
  8. Garnish with fresh parsley.
