How to prepare butternut squash
Nutrition per serving
- ⅓ butternut squash
- cutting board
Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F. Peel butternut squash, slice in half, and remove the seeds.
- baking sheet
To help you slice in the Hasselback style, place two skewers on either side of the butternut squash halves – this will prevent your knife from cutting all the way through. Slice thinly and repeat the process for the other half, then transfer both butternut squash halves to a baking sheet.
- 41⅔ g clarified butter
- ⅓ tbsp maple syrup
- rubber spatula
Heat the clarified butter in a saucepan and cook until completely melted and warmed through. Add maple syrup and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
- 6⅔ sage leaves
- pastry brush
Place sage leaves between the butternut squash slices and brush both halves with some of the clarified butter mixture.
- maple syrup (for serving)
- sea salt (for serving)
Bake in the oven at 200°C/400°F for approx. 50 min., or until the butternut squash is soft and browned on the edges. Baste the butternut squash with the clarified butter mixture approx. every 10 min during the baking time. Remove from the oven and serve on a large plate with a drizzle of maple syrup and some sea salt. Enjoy!
