Recipe Box, Maple Roasted Butternut Squash & Brussels Sprouts

Have you noticed the influx of prepared vegetables at the grocery store lately?

I swear every time I go there are more choices and types of prepared veggies, 5-6 types of spiralized vegetables, sliced, diced and seasoned vegetables, all ready for cooking

When I saw chopped butternut squash last week, I grabbed it…Have you ever chopped a butternut squash?

Not fun!!

I grabbed the sliced Brussels sprouts too, and threw them together for the easiest, tastiest side dish ever!

If you don’t like Brussels sprouts use broccoli florets instead

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and pile the squash and sprouts in the center

Drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper, and maple syrup

Roast in the oven for 30 minutes

This is full of sweet and savory flavors to compliment any meat, chicken, pork or fish entree

You could also put it on a salad of greens, spinach or kale

It would be great on pasta too, mix in cooked chicken, ham or bacon

Endless possibilities for this flavorful combo!

    You’re exactly right about butternut squash! I grated a whole one recently and it was a horrible job! I’m just so used to doing everything from scratch, but these are definitely kitchen helpers. Great recipe!

    • One trick I learned is to poke it like you would a potato before baking, and then microwave it for 5 minutes. This will soften it enough to make cutting a little easier. But from now on, I am buying it cut for me!

    Great idea to mix!

  3. Jenna, I have tried too many times to cut butternut squash, I love the prepared ones. I haven’t thought of adding maple syrup, this looks delicious.! The Tide definitely rolled last night!

    This is a great combination, and I actually roasted squash and Brussels sprouts over the Labor Day weekend at the lake (Shanley was craving fresh veggies). I didn’t use maple syrup, but I think it would make the veggies even better! Thanks, Jenna!

  5. jj says:

    This sounds and looks, delicious. Simple and elegant. Thanks for the idea!

  6. It just dawned on me Rick didn’t plant Brussels this year. Pooh. Well, there’s always the market. This looks good!
