Roasted Butternut Squash with Granny Smith Apples


Butternut squash is low in fat but high in many nutrients including vitamin A, Vitamin C, magnesium and potassium.


Butternut squash can be a great addition to any meal as a side, or incorporated into the main dish. I've roasted mine along side a pork chop in the photo to the left. I tried something different this time with my roasted squash. I tried adding a green apple!. It turned out great. Just a hint of bitter sweetness was added and took the squash to a whole new level. Let me tell you how I made this side dish.


I started with 2 sheet pans, and lined them both with aluminum foil. I preheated the oven to 400 F. Next I cut the butternut squash into chunks and divided it between the two pans. I then chunked one red onion and 2 green apples. Then, I divided them between the two sheets, also. Lastly, I drizzled Kasandrino's olive oil all over the both pans of vegetables and dusted salt and pepper and Balanced Bites Trifecta Spice blend all over. (You can add garlic powder or granules in place of the Trifecta.)
