Roasted Butternut Squash with Indian Spices and Caramelized Onions

BY : PUBLISHED : November 19th, 2013 UPDATED: November 14th, 2021

Quick and easy, this side dish just about cooks itself while you tend to other matters. The combination of sweet roasted squash, deeply caramelized onions, and warming Indian spices is great for fall, or really, any time of the year. And don’t feel limited to Indian spices – go ahead and use ground cumin, coriander, and chile powder; oregano and dehydrated garlic; regular or smoked paprika; or just a ton of black pepper, which is one of the best things you can add to any squash dish.
