  • ½ tbsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ tbsp ground cumin

  1. Start by preheating your oven to 375°. Toss the butternut squash in a little olive oil, salt and pepper.
  2. Bake on a lined and sprayed pan for about 30 minutes. Make sure to shake the pan a little every 10 minutes or so.
  3. While you are waiting for the squash to roast, use a small pan over low heat add your curry powder, nutmeg and cumin. Slowly mix the spices together in the pan until they become very fragrant. After a few minutes remove from the pan and whisk them together with the olive oil. As soon as the squash are removed from the oven toss them in the oil and spice combination.
