Butternut Squash with Browned Butter & Sage

Serves 4

Ingredients

2 cups butternut squash, cubed

½ tbsp. olive oil

½ tbsp. butter, unsalted

Pinch of salt

1 tsp black pepper

1 tbsp sage, dried

 

Directions

In a bowl, pour the oil over the squash and toss squash with olive oil.  Massage squash with your hands to make sure olive oil fully coats it. Place in a small pot and cook on a medium heat for about 6 minutes (or until the edges are slightly browned). Make sure to stir often to prevent burning and sticking.  In a smaller pan, melt the butter with the salt and pepper. Once the squash is complete, keep it on the hot burner but turn it off.  Gently stir in the melted butter mixture and then the sage. Enjoy!
