Learn how to easily make roasted butternut squash for a quick and healthy fall side dish or use in a recipe, such as butternut squash soup or a vegan cheese sauce!


  • 3 cups cubed butternut squash
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp fresh or dried thyme
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp sage
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp sea salt + more to taste
  • Topping: olive oil drizzle


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F, and grease a large baking dish with coconut oil. Alternatively, you can use a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper or tin foil. Please coat the paper or foil with coconut oil to prevent sticking.
  2. Add the butternut squash to the dish or pan, and top with the remaining ingredients. Toss lightly in the dish or carefully on the pan, and place into the oven to roast for 35-40 minutes.
  3. When the roasted butternut squash is done, it will be slightly browned at the corners and easy to poke a fork through. Remove from oven when ready and cool for 10 minutes before serving.
  4. Once cooled, store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
