Rosh Hashana Recipe- Carmelized Butternut Squash

Squash is served at the Rosh Hashana Night meals as a request that G-d tear up bad decrees. There are many ways you could serve the squash (sauteed, stir-fried, baked in a souffle, or pureed in a soup). I find  roasted butternut squash with a hint of  brown sugar to be a perfect side dish for this festive meal.
Carmelized Butternut Squash
2 butternut squash- peeled, seeded, and cut into thick chunks
2 T margarine (canola oil can be substituted)
Salt (1/4 tsp)
3 T dark brown sugar
dash of cinnamon
yield: serves 8
  • Peel Squash (you can pierce and cook the squash for about 25 minutes to make it softer and easier to peel)
  • Remove Seeds
  • Cut Squash into Chunks
  • Place chunks in a baking dish (sprayed with baking spray)
  • Combine sugar and margarine/oil and drizzle over Squash
  • Sprinkle salt
  • Sprinkle cinnamon over squash
  • Bake at 425 for about 50  minutes till lightly browned
*Tip- squash not getting that carmelized look?
ovens vary and so do baking times.
To achieve that roasted color, turn up your oven to a higher temp until desired golden color is achieved
