  • 1/2 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1 to 1 1/4 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ceylon cinnamon
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 3/4 tsp cumin
  • few sprinkles of black pepper
  • 2 tsp dried onion flakes
  • 1 tsp dried garlic (or one finely chopped garlic clove)
  • 4-5 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small/medium butternut squash



Step 1

Slice butternut into strips (or small cubes no greater than 1/2 an inch wide)

Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with all the spices/seasonings/salt. Use your hands to massage seasoning evenly over the butternut strips.

Preheat oven to 400.

Bake on a cookie sheet, on the middle rack for about 50 minutes, or until they're slightly browned and tender enough to pierce with a fork.

Allow to cool before eating.
