This recipe is super simple and delicious. It always calls my name during fall and the cold winter months because of it’s warming spice mixture. The secret ingredient I use here is Garam Masala. Garam masala is a blend of ground spices common in North Indian and South Asian cultures. According to Ayurvedic the word garam means to heat and these spices certainly will warm your body on a cold day! I also like to use Ghee in this recipe as it has a host of health benefits and a much higher smoke point than olive oil so you don’t have to worry about it’s healthy properties breaking down.
Cubed Butternut Squash
1-2 Tbsp Ghee (depending on how much squash being used)
1 tsp cinnamon
Dash of clove
Dash of nutmeg
1 tsp garam masala
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl toss together the cubed squash along with the melted ghee, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and masala. Place the squash in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 50-60 minutes until desired tenderness.
