Gluten-Free Butternut Squash Recipe
This amazing gluten-free butternut squash recipe could not be any easier to make and it is so delicious! It only calls for four ingredients: butternut squash, salt, dill, and feta cheese. The only time-consuming part is peeling the skin off of the butternut squash!
When I lived in San Diego, CA, I didn’t get the chance to fly home to Louisiana for every holiday, so I usually chose Christmas over Thanksgiving. One particular Thanksgiving my husband and I went over to one of our friend’s houses to spend it with her family that was coming into town. She was a very healthy eater and we didn’t see the usual (and very delicious) Au gratin potatoes, sweet potato casserole with brown sugar and marshmallows, and dips and chips that were so common at my Louisiana Thanksgivings growing up. Instead, her spread was full of roasted vegetables and hummus with carrots! One of her dishes was made with butternut squash, feta & dill and was amazing! The flavor combo was so delicious that I recreated a version of this recipe to share with you all.
Having spent that particular Thanksgiving away from home was a great chance to try something new and learn from another healthy eater. This is ultimately why I decided to start Cooking with My Friends, so we can all continue to learn together! Watch the first season of Cooking with My Friends.
“This is the perfect way to use dill that isn’t to make pickles or in salads!” – Alane
