Simple Baked Squash

I love squash. It is such a healthy vegetable and I think it goes well with so many things like stews, chili, rice dishes, or on its own with some cinnamon and a little brown sugar.

This is an easy and basic way to prepare squash. This time I am using butternut, but this works well with any winter squash, just check that it is done at the 30 minute mark and if not keep going and check it every 10 minutes or so until its cooked through. Cooking times vary depending on the size or type of squash, but the basic steps are the same.

Simple Baked Squash


1 winter squash
2 tsp olive oil
salt and pepper


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Wash your squash and cut it lengthwise down the middle. Scoop out the seeds and drizzle it with the olive oil. Then use your hands to rub the old all over the surface of the squash. Place the halves cut side down on a cookie sheet and put it in the preheated oven to bake for 30 minutes. Check the squash for doneness by piercing it with a fork. If it is tender, it is done.
