You might be wondering: can you eat off the skin of roasting butternut squash? The short answer is yes, you can. But the texture isn’t quite as perfect if that’s what you’re looking for. Please let me know by commenting below when you’ve successfully roasted butternut squash.
After you have roasted butternuts in the recipe above, you’ll notice that they were rather dry. They were almost raw if you compare them with other vegetables. This is actually a good thing because the dryness will help them absorb flavors better. In the next step, you’ll simply use an immersion blender to puree the squash. You should use about half of the squash unless you want to use it whole.
How to Make Roasted Butternut Squash Halves: If you like the taste of roasted butternuts, but they aren’t too exciting on their own, you can add garlic to your recipe. Just add a few cloves, press down gently, and blend. Then drizzle some oil over it and bake it in the oven. You’ll get a delicious, healthy dessert.
How to Make Roasted Butternut Squash Sides: Most people love creamy, salty, or spicy flavors, so this might be the recipe that you try if you’re looking to add some complexity to your regular side dishes. For starters, try using smoked Gouda cheese. Salzburg cheese also works well, as does the stuff from your local deli. Then you can use a little bit of black pepper, grind it up finely, and sprinkle it over your roasted butternuts before filling the baking sheet with the mixture. If you wish, season with sea salt for a salty taste.
How to Make Roasted Butternut Salsa: This is a wonderful recipe that uses cubed cubes of roasted butternuts along with chopped tomatoes, bell pepper, onion, garlic, cilantro, and serrano pepper.

Place them into a medium-sized airtight container.
How to Make Roasted Butternut Squash Carrot Cake: This recipe is easy and very tasty if you are a fan of carrot cakes.

Bring all these ingredients to room temperature and then boil them in water for about ten minutes until they are done.
