Five-Spice Roasted Butternut Squash

One of my favorite side dishes. So incredibly easy with amazing flavors. Naturally vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free.
Servings 4 to 6


  • 2 1/2 to 3 pounds butternut squash peeled, seeded and cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Chinese Five-Spice powder
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Arrange butternut cubes on a large baking sheet. Drizzle the cubes with olive oil, salt, pepper, five-spice powder and maple syrup. Using your hands, toss it all together, getting all of the cubes coated.
  • Place in the oven and roast for 30 to 35 minutes or until tender.
