Roasted squash is one of my favorite items on the table from October to December. I love the different varieties of pumpkin and squash you can find in the grocery stores.

I also grew up knowing only about pumpkin, and I always associated it with sugar, as my grandma or my mom used to make only pumpkin pie, pumpkin strudel and sometimes pumpkin soup.

This recipe is very easy to make and requires only a few ingredients. I used Kabocha squash, but I also tried acorn and even pumpkin. The pumpkin will be sweater, but still very delicious.

HOW TO MAKE ROASTED KABOCHA SQUASH WITH COCONUT OIL:

Step one.

Preheat the oven to 400F.

Step two.

Cut the squash in half.

Note: Use a sharp knife and be careful with your fingers. The shell of this particular squash is kind of hard, so you need to pay attention to your hands.

Make it easier for you by cutting off the top and the bottom, so it gives you more support on the table when you slice it.

I did not have to do that with my squash, but you might need to cut the bottom at least.

Step three.

Using a tablespoon, remove the seeds from both insides.

Step four.

Cut the squash in thin wedges.

Step five.

You will need only these ingredients: salt, pepper and coconut oil. Melt 2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil in the microwave and massage each slice of squash with it.

Do the same thing with salt and pepper. I did not measure the salt and pepper because this is based on the size of the squash and your taste.

Step six.

Roast the squash in the oven for about 30 mins flipping the wedges over after 15 mins. They are ready when they are a little bit crunchy on the outside and soft inside.

Serve warm.

That’s it! If you make it this way, you have a delicious vegetable that can be paired with any kind of meats, rice, quinoa, other roasted vegetables and salads.
