I wrote this recipe in about 90 seconds. Okay maybe it took two minutes. It only took me 10 minutes to get it in the oven. And the photos just happened. Like that. It was no effort at all. Thank goodness, because I am completely in the weeds.

But then I get here to my computer screen and I don’t know what to call this recipe. Calling it simply “Roasted Butternut Squash” would be a huge disservice to this magical dish, and ignoring the fact that it has so much added flavor.

Calling it smoky would work for sure, because it is. But it is so much more than that. Other name contenders were “Umami Roasted Butternut Squash.” “Savory Butternut Squash” (I’ve already sort of used that one.) And even “The Best Roasted Butternut Squash.” It’s not that I don’t think it is the best roasted butternut squash, it actually is, it’s just when I go and make a statement like that I feel like I have to come up with a long list of reasons why it is the best, and I am just not up for that right now. You know weeds, priorities. Purse.

Ultimately, because I just needed to get something on paper I named it Roasted Butternut Squash with Smoked Paprika and Turmeric. I know. Lame. But I did. Even though a gigantic name like that makes it sound complicated or fancy. It isn’t. ‘Cuz I just said it only took me 10 minutes to get it in the oven.

So that’s all there is to it. It is yummy, smoky, savory. The best. It is also paleo and vegan and gluten-free and hashtagarama. Easy. I could go on.

 

Okay, enough already. I have to get back to those weeds. Now it is your turn. What do you guys think? What would you have named this?

 

Happy Cooking!

  2. Love this recipe, Katie! Roasted butternut squash is one of my ultimate comfort foods in the Fall. I’ll definitely have to try this version out as the smoked paprika sounds like it’s right up my alley. I hope you are doing well! 🙂

  9. I love finding new ways to cook squash. Definitely will try this. However, how do you peel and cube the raw squash? It is a chore to cut into wedges and some bigger pieces, which I do in order to boil it. But to cut into small pieces and peel raw seems a huge task to me. When I cook butternut squash, I boil it first at least for a bit to make it softer and easier to peel and cut smaller; then I roast. Would that work for this recipe? I don’t want to make it too soft and lose on texture.

    • Hi Maya, thanks for your question. I am sure others are wondering the same. To peel the squash leave the entire raw squash whole. Use a good vegetable peeler to peel the entire thing. Careful! It will get slippery! Then cut in half lengthwise, scoop out the seeds and pulp with a spoon. Then cut into cubes. Enjoy!

  10. Oh my goodness this was unbelievably fantastically delicious! Thank you, thank you!

  11. Best recipe ever! The flavor is amazing. So quick & easy to make. So I’m making it again for dinner tonight! Thanks for sharing!

  12. I do not frequent any blogs, but I do plenty of perusing Pintrest…this is how I stumbled upon this recipe, when I was planning for Christmas dinner. I just HAD to find this post again so that I could let you know how amazing this recipe is.

    My mother and my in-laws are less adventurous than my husband and I and none of them were big fans of squash. I found this recipe when planning my menu and knew that we couldn’t tell ANYONE that we were making squash because we’d get moans and groans galore. I put it on the table (SO EASY!!!) and everyone dug in, believing that my squash was sweet potato. My brother in law was the first to ask what it was and everyone was STUNNED to know that they loved squash.

    I’m so sorry for the lengthy comment but I’m obsessed with your recipe and I needed you to know!! I’m always searching for healthy AND delicious recipes and this post did not disappoint. Thanks so much!!
