Instructions

INGREDIENTS

For the Butternut Squash:

  • 1 medium butternut squash, peeled and cubed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Stevia finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

 

For the Herb Drizzle:

  • 1 tbsp chives, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp lemongrass, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh navel orange juice
  • 1 tbsp lemon verbena, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt, to taste

 

Additional:

  • 2 ripe avocados, sliced

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Preparing the Butternut Squash: Preheat the oven to 400°F (205°C). In a mixing bowl, combine the butternut squash cubes, olive oil, stevia, salt, and pepper. Toss to ensure all pieces are coated evenly. Spread the mixture on a baking sheet and roast for 20-25 minutes, or until the squash is tender and slightly caramelized. Remove and set aside to cool slightly.

Preparing the Herb Drizzle: In a bowl, whisk together chives, cilantro, lemongrass, lemon verbena, navel orange juice, and olive oil. Season with salt. Ensure it's well combined.

Assembly:

In a serving dish, layer the stevia-glazed butternut squash. Intersperse with avocado slices, ensuring a good mix of both. Drizzle the herb mixture over the top, ensuring the squash and avocado are generously coated. Garnish with chopped herbs.

Serve warm and enjoy the melding of sweetness, creaminess, and zest.

This dish is versatile and can be paired with various main dishes and a wide array of proteins. The sweetness of the squash and the herb-infused drizzle make it a perfect late afternoon or summer evening meal.
