Brown Sugar Squash

Brown Sugar Squash

Squash is a delicious and nutritious food that I absolutely love to roast in the winter months. It makes a great side dish, works great mashed, and is hearty enough to stand on it’s own as a main dish with a protein source and greens. This simple recipe with brown sugar, butter, and maple syrup will make a squash lover out of anyone. Add a touch of spice if you prefer a sweet and spicy flavor.

Brown Sugar Squash


  • 1 large or 2 small squash of your choice – I like delicata, kuri, or butternut squash
  • 2 tbsp. vegan butter or coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • Maple syrup
  • Salt and pepper
  • Optional: Cayenne, chili powder, or curry powder for a touch of spice

Cooking Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut squash in half and scoop out the seeds.
  3. Add 1 tbsp. of butter and 1 tbsp. brown sugar to each squash half. Use 1/2 tbsp. for smaller squash halves. Drizzle with maple syrup. Season with salt, pepper, and spice powder if using.
  4. Place on a baking sheet and roast for 40-60 minutes until soft and tender.
