Maple Butternut Squash

Vegan, Oil-Free, Low Fat! Maple Butternut Squash.  So simple & only three ingredients! www.LipstickandBerries.com

Butternut Squash is an incredible healthy carb with some awesome heart-healthy benefits! Low in fat, butternut squash delivers an ample dose of dietary fiber, which makes it an exceptionally heart-friendly choice.  Butternut Squash’s golden hue, indicates an abundance of powerhouse nutrients known as carotenoids, shown to protect against heart disease.  This time of the year I look to incorporate deep, warm, cozy-colored foods like squash and beets into my meals and this amazing squash has become one of my favorites. This is the easiest side dish ever! It’s practically fool proof!  For people who can tolerate an extra added sweetness, the maple syrup (always pure 100%) really brings out the richness of the dish.  Sounds SUPER sweet to me!

*Sometimes I put this dish in the fridge for a couple hours to congeal and serve as a healthy dessert with some fresh orange slices to add a little unique kick to your dessert desire*

Ingredients

8 Cups Butternut Squash, cubed

1/8 Cup Pure Maple Syrup

1 Teaspoon Cinnamon

1/2 Teaspoon Cardamom

Directions

1.  Mix and toss all ingredients in a bowl and  pour onto a parchment paper lined baking pan. 

2.  Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.  

**Note:  Depending on what size your cubes are this will affect baking time. My squash was cut into small half inch by half inch cubes.  Just keep an eye on the oven!
