Yields6 ServingsPrep Time10 minsCook Time20 mins

Roasted squash embodies the essence of winter meals and could be the perfect solution if you were searching for a plant-based holiday side dish. Consider this simple recipe a base for a more-dressed up roasted squash and sage dish; consider adding caramelized onions, dried cranberries, and toasted pine nuts for a more lavish holiday spread.

 ½ butternut squash, peeled and diced into ½-inch cubes (about 3 cups)
 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
 ½ tsp salt
 7 leaves fresh sage, choppedor 2 tbsp dried sage

Preheat the oven to 400°F.


In a large bowl, combine the squash, olive oil, and salt until the squash is evenly coated. Stir in the sage.


Transfer the squash to a nonstick roasting pan and bake in the oven until the squash is tender and lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
