Roasted butternut squash with coconut sugar and cinnamon



Butternut squash is the superior squash in my eyes. I promise you, this will not last at the dinner table, it is addictive! This is a very simple recipe, and it's the perfect sweet and savoury Fall side dish. I love serving these in a harvest bowl with quinoa, beets and kale, or alongside my lentil-mushroom meatloaf. If you try these, you'll be obsessed!
