  • 1 Butternut Squash (2-3 Lbs)
  • 1-2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt (To Taste)


  • Preheat the oven to 425°.
  • Peel and cut the squash into similar size cubes, approx. 1/2".
  • Drizzle olive oil over the cut squash and toss to evenly coat.
  • Transfer the squash to a large parchment covered baking sheet and spread out, ensuring no two pieces touch.
  • Season with salt and cook for approx. 40 minutes, tossing the cubes halfway through. Check with a fork to ensure the squash is tender and golden before removing. Cook for an additional 5 minutes if needed (depends on the size of your squash cubes). Repeat in 5 minute increments as needed.
  • Remove from the oven, transfer to a serving platter and enjoy.
