 Whole Life Challenge Approved Recipe of the Day: Roasted Butternut Squash

  • Butternut squash can be a pain in the posterior to cut up.  The secret to chopping it up with ease is to cut off both ends and peel the skin with a sharp vegetable peeler before hacking away at it.
  • Here’s how I roast my butternut squash:
  • Preheat your oven to 400°F.  I like to use the convection roast function on my oven because the squash comes out crisper on the outside.
  • Peel, seed, and chop your squash into uniform pieces and place on a aluminum foil lined baking sheet.
  • Melt 2-3 tablespoons of lard in the microwave (nuke in 30 second intervals until it liquefies).
  • Toss the squash with the melted lard, salt, and pepper.
  • Roast for ~45 minutes, tossing the squash every 15 minutes or so.
