Roasted Butternut Squash with Tart Cherries

A perfect, simple, pan roasted side dish for a family supper. The sweetness of the squash creates a delicious caramel around the edges – that really sets off the tart cherry and smokiness of the paprika.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Peel the winter squash and cut in 1-inch squares. And cut the dried cherries in half.
  2. Pre-heat the oven for 375° F (190° C).
  3. Toss the squash with the olive oil, salt, smoked paprika, a few grinds of black pepper and turn out onto a baking sheet.
  4. Roast for 30 minutes, add the cherry pieces and toss to combine; continue to roast another 20 to 25 minutes until the edges of the squash are brown and caramelized.

Easy to make, very low calorie, and quite tasty. I think this may be taking the place of sweet potato or yam at the Thanksgiving table this year!
