Vegan, gluten free, & delicious! These have such a great combination of flavors. Sweet, spicy, & rich. They were a really great side dish. This was my first time working with 5 spice & I am positive it won’t be my last!
I didn’t realize that the 5 spice already had pepper in it so I used 1/2 tsp pepper & they turned out a bit too peppery. I will leave it out next time.
Original recipe from http://www.tasteloveandnourish.com
Recipe makes 4 large servings
1 serving = 2 weight watchers points+
2 1/2 – 3 lb butternut squash
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper (I would leave this out if I were you)
1 1/2 tsp 5 spice
Remove seeds, peel, & cube your butternut squash. Place on a large baking sheet.
Drizzle olive oil & maple syrup over squash & sprinkle spices on top. Using your hands mix it all up until all of the squash seems to be well coated.
Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 30-40 minutes stirring once halfway through.
