Butternut Squash "Steak"

Updated: Nov 23, 2019


Like many other endeavoring healthy eaters, you may be trying to cut down on your meat intake in order to be more environmentally aware or simply to diversify your source of nutrients. Whatever the case, our suggestion for doing so it to begin thinking about your vegetables with the potential to be less of a side dish and more as a hardy main course.


One vegetable that is great for this is flavorful Butternut squash. Butternut squash is not only great alone with simple seasoning, but with many fall vegetables such as Brussel sprouts, potatoes, cauliflower, and mushrooms.
