A&I BSG Week 2 Bonus Blog 3 - Magnificent Mums - Recipe Share

Sunday, November 11, 2012

Today I had to share a recipe for a challenge I am participating with in a Facebook group I am in so I thought I would share it with my Spark Friends as well. Hubby and I neither one used to eat squash, but we have been trying new recipes and this is one that be both have come to enjoy a lot.

Butternut Squash Oven Fries

½ Butternut Squash
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Mansmith's Grilling Spice (Low Sodium)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees

Peel and chop butternut squash into medium size wedges

Place butternut squash pieces in a bowl with olive oil and grilling spice and toss well to coat

Arrange squash on baking sheet in one single layer, place in oven for 20 minutes, turn over and bake for another 15 minutes, or until tender and browned

(We also sometimes add turnips, parsnips, carrots, and/or beets)

If you haven't already tried squash (and other root vegetables) this way, I urge you to try it. It is very tasty.

    Unfamiliar with Mansmith's spice. However, I have done a skillet meal with parsnips, potatoes, and onions that I really like. thanks for sharing

    Sounds good but unfamiliar with the Mansmiths spice, is it comparable to another type?

    Sounds good but I've never heard of Mansmith's Grilling Spice. Is it a national brand? I need to start eating more foods like this!
