How to Roast Butternut Squash – a simple and easy method for roasting butternut squash!


  • 1 or more butternut squash, halved lengthwise


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Take halved butternut squash and scoop out the seeds, scraping clean and hollowing out the inside.
  3. Rub the cut side with avocado oil.
  4. Place cut side open on a baking sheet (feel free to put some foil or parchment underneath).
