  • 1 large butternut squash (baked, peeled, and cubed)
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  1. Place the whole butternut squash into a 9×13 pan with about 1 inch of water in the bottom. Bake it at 400F/200C for about an hour. Once it’s soft to the touch, yet firm without being mushy, remove it and let it cool for about 15 minutes.

  2. Cut the squash in half from top to bottom. Cut the skin off of the outside and scoop out the seeds and discard. Cut the squash into 1″ cubes. Place cubes into a 2 qt. baking dish.

  3. Combine the parsley, oil, garlic, salt, and pepper. Pour over top the squash cubes and toss gently to cover.

  4. Bake, uncovered, at 400F/200C for 50 minutes until squash is nice and tender.

  5. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over top and return to the oven for about 5 minutes to lightly brown cheese.

Recipe Notes

Note: Winter squash is high in starch. If you're battling candida, remember to make this a limited treat. :)
