  • 1 medium butternut squash about 1.5-2 pounds
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup broth or water


  • Peel, deseed, and cut squash into small, bite-sized pieces. About 1/2 inch cubes.
  • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Once hot, add butternut squash carefully and stir to coat them with oil. Season with the salt and garlic powder. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently. This will give the squash a lovely caramelized crust.
  • After 10 minutes, add the broth or water. Cover and cook another 10 minutes or until the squash is tender.
  • Enjoy warm.
