  • 4 cup butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1-1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tbsp ancho chili powder
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • sea salt

Preheat oven to 400. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, toss squash with olive oil and a pinch of salt. Arrange in an even layer on baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, add honey, chili powder, mustard and a pinch of salt to a small bowl; mix to combine.

Remove squash from oven and generously brush glaze evenly on top. Return to oven and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until squash is fully cooked. Stick a decorative toothpick into each ‘bite’ and serve warm or room temperature.
