I’ve been seeing dozens of recipes for butternut squash all over social media lately, with the caveat that it’s the recipe “for people that hate butternut squash”.

Do people really hate butternut squash? I find that hard to believe, especially since the recipe I just created literally tastes like dessert to me.

Please don’t laugh at me for saying that squash tastes like dessert – I promise I’m not one of those stuck up dietitians that doesn’t touch sugar. This dish has an awesome spiced butter and maple syrup glaze on it, and would make a great side dish for your Thanksgiving dinner (which is coming up WAY too soon!)

I also ate this dish for breakfast on the side of my eggs. That’s one benefit of recipe creation – leftovers for days!

This recipe is Paleo and gluten-free, and could potentially be made vegetarian/vegan if you substitute coconut oil for butter. Enjoy!
