Butternut Squash with Indian Spice
2 1/2 cups peeled squash cut into 1-inch pieces (butternut, buttercup,
amber, golden nugget or hubbard)
1 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil
Indian Spice Health Seasoning Mix:
1 tsp. curry powder
1 tsp. turmeric
3/4 tsp. salt
1 pinch of cayenne
Place squash in bowl and toss with olive oil. In a small bowl mix the
Indian Spice Health Seasoning ingredients together.
Sprinkle spice mix on squash and toss. Use 1 1/2 to 2 tsp. of the spice mix
for every 4 cups squash.
Pre-heat oven to 375°. Place 12-inch skillet over high heat for 2 minutes.
Turn off heat. Add squash and all the oil. Use a rubber spatula. Shake the
pan to distribute squash into 1 layer. Place in oven and roast for 20 to 30
minutes turning once midway.
Notes: Don't crowd the pan or the squash won't brown properly. If not brown
after 20 minutes raise heat to 400° for 5 minutes.
