Sweet and Savory Winter Squash - Kim's Welcoming Kitchen

Because it's in season in the colder months, we eat a lot of winter squash (acorn, butternut, etc.).  
We usually eat it with soy-free Earth Balance and brown sugar or maple syrup , but sometimes you want something a little different. This variation will be a staple in our menus this fall and winter. Keep this in mind for a Thanksgiving side dish!

Sweet and Savory Winter Squash - Kim's Welcoming Kitchen

Sweet and Savory Winter Squash

Serves 4

5-6 cups peeled and cubed (approx. 1-inch cubes) winter squash
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 425.
In a large bowl, combine orange juice, olive oil and seasonings.
Add squash cubes, toss to coat. Let sit for 15 minutes.
Pour squash and marinade onto a baking sheet .
Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until squash is tender. (After 10 minutes, flip the squash around.)

Happy Cooking!
