This is Butternut Squash #3 in my kitchen this fall. My skin is turning more orange by the minute. Stinking beta carotene.
That’s actually not what I wanted to tell you.
No, what I wanted to tell you is that when butternut squash is peeled, cubed and roasted in coconut oil, it reminds me a heck of a lot of a roasted sweet potato.
But that’s not the good part.
Compared to a sweet potato, butternut squash has nearly 100 fewer calories, half as many carbs and 9 fewer grams of sugar per 1 cup serving.
