Garlic Herb Butternut Squash

Garlic Herb Butternut Squash
Yields 10
This garlic and herb butternut squash is an easy but crazy flavorful side dish to add to your Thanksgiving menu. It is naturally vegan, paleo and gluten-free. It can be made entirely on the stove-top so it won’t have to jockey for position in the oven.

Ingredients
  1. 1 large butternut squash, seeded, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes (2.75 to 3 pounds)
  2. 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 4 cloves garlic, minced
  4. 1/3 cup chopped mixed herbs, such as parsley, thyme and rosemary
  5. ¾ teaspoon salt or to taste
  6. ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Add squash to the basket, cover and steam until the squash is tender, 13 to 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, and cook, stirring often until the garlic is fragrant and just starting to brown slightly, 1 to 3 minutes. Immediately pour the garlic and oil into a large mixing bowl, add herbs and stir.
  3. Add the cooked squash to the garlic herb mixture. Add salt and pepper and gently stir to combine. Keep warm until ready to serve.
Notes
  1. A 2.75 pound squash (untrimmed with seeds and peel) yields 6 cups cooked squash. A large squash will work great, but you'll have to add a pinch more salt. Just taste to see.
  2. Serving size: 2/3cup
