Servings 4 people


  • 1 buttercup squash large
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • Salt to taste


  • Start by cutting the buttercup squash. You can do that by trimming a small portion of the top and bottom of the vegetable. Next, cut it in half and remove the seeds. Once done, cut it into ¼ inch thick slices.
  • Place the slices on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • In a bowl, mix paprika, cumin powder, salt, and black pepper.
  • Drizzle olive oil on the butternut squash slices and rub the prepared mixture.
  • Place the baking sheet in a preheated oven at 425-degree F for about 40 minutes.
  • Halfway into the cook, remove the baking sheet from the oven, flip the slices and drizzle with olive oil and rub the remaining mixture.
  • Cook until the buttercup squash gets color and is cooked.
  • Serve.
