This healthy butternut squash recipe is baked in a hot oven and turns out irresistibly sweet and caramelized. If you’d like, top with a dollop of Greek yogurt for a creamy counterpoint! And pickled onions add a tangy flair. 


  • 1 large butternut squash (about 2 1/2 pounds, 5 to 6 cups diced)
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Hour Quick Pickled Onions, to serve
  • Greek yogurt or cashew cream, to serve


  1. Make the 1 Hour Quick Pickled Onions.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425F.
  3. Chop the butternut squash into 1/2″ cubes (see the video instructions). In a large bowl, mix the butternut squash with the olive oil, garlic powder, kosher salt, and a few grinds of black pepper. Pour the vegetables onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicon mat. Roast until tender, about 20 to 25 minutes.
  4. To serve, place the roasted butternut squash on a platter and top with pickled onions and dollops of Greek yogurt.
