Squash 101

squash (1)Ever bought a squash and had it sit on the counter 3 months because you weren’t sure what to do with the darn thing? Wait no longer, here is one of the easiest and most delicious ways to prepare your counter-ridden squash.

What you will need:
1 butternut squash
1 tbsp coconut oil (ish)
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cloves
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of sea-salt

Here’s what you need to do:
Preheat the oven to 350.

Wash the outside of the squash thoroughly (I like to eat the skin but even if you don’t it’s probably good to give it a scrub).

Cut the squash in half lengthwise (hotdog style). Scoop out the small amount of seeds. Rub the inside of the squash with a little coconut oil.

Place squash on a baking sheet face up and bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until tender.

Remove from oven and cut into squares. Turn oven on to broil.  Toss squared squash in a bowl with coconut oil and coat evenly.  Spread out on baking sheet.  Sprinkle with spices and place in oven for 5 minutes.
