Summer is just around the corner, and with it comes a (hopefully) bountiful garden harvest. This roasted butternut squash with a tigernut-honey glaze is perfectly sweet, tender, and creamy thanks to the addition of our original Tigernut Spread. The earthy, nutty flavor of the tigernut spread perfectly complements the butternut squash’s natural sweetness and adds a more complex taste and texture to a simple vegetable. Made without artificial ingredients, processed sugar, or common allergens, our Tigernut Spread is the perfect addition to this simple side dish.

Ingredients

  • 1 small butternut squash
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons Natureul Tigernut Spread in Original flavor
  • ¼ teaspoon fine salt
  • Pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350℉.
  2. Using a vegetable peeler, remove the hard outer skin of the squash. Carefully slice the squash in half lengthwise, then use a spoon to scoop out the seeds. Cut the squash into 1 - 1 ½ inch cubes.
  3. Add the squash to a bowl with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat.
  4. Spread the squash in a single layer on a lined baking sheet and place in the oven. Bake the squash for 12-15 minutes until fork-tender and crisp on the edges.
  5. In a small bowl, stir together the honey and tigernut spread until combined. Carefully pour over the squash and then bake again for another 5-7 minutes until the glaze thickens.
  6. Remove the baked tigernut-honey glazed squash from the oven and allow to cool before plating.

Tips For Making Roasted Butternut Squash with Tigernut-Honey Glaze

Choose a smaller squash. It may be tempting to go for the most massive specimen at the supermarket, but a smaller butternut squash is easier to work with. If you need to make a large amount, use several small squashes.

To make the squash easier to work with, chop it where the bulb meets the neck before slicing the parts lengthwise. Do this after peeling the whole squash to make the process easier on yourself.

Use local honey. Honey that’s local to you is good for your environment and great for your immune system! Honey from different farms will taste different according to the plants they pollinate, so try different varieties to see what works best for you.

Make it sweeter. If you like your butternut squash sweeter, add a few more tablespoons of honey to brighten things up. Add a squeeze of lemon for an even bigger burst of flavor!

How to Store Roasted Butternut Squash with Tigernut-Honey Glaze

You can store the roasted butternut squash in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 7 days. Freezing it is simple, too: just make sure your container is freezer-safe and freeze the squash for up to 6 months. If you want it to be easy to cook from frozen, freeze it in a single layer on a lined baking sheet until solid, then transfer it to a Ziploc or other sealed bag. Reheat on a baking sheet following the original instructions.
