I found myself in a common predicament tonight. My plans changed and I had nothing planned or thawed out for dinner. I had 1/4 of a butternut squash in the fridge leftover from another recipe and I remembered that last week I made some butternut squash in the microwave and it was really good. So I figured this time I would pay attention to what I did and share it with you, so here it is!
Super Quick Sweet & Spicy Butternut Squash
1/4 Butternut Squash cut into small cubes
1/2 tbsp Agave Nectar (you can use a combination of 1 tsp oil and 1/2 tbsp brown sugar as well)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp red pep per flakes
Salt and Pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together in a microwave safe bowl.
Place in microwave for 2 minutes 30 seconds, covered.
Stir and then microwave for an additional 1 minute. Makes 1 serving.
I served mine on the side of a Boca Burger and it made for a quick, easy dinner! No defrosting required!
