Squash With Nutmeg And Lime

Time for a new veggie dish. I know,  but you have to get back to eating GOOD meals and no more over-snacking. Season is almost over.


  • 1 – 3 – 3  1/2 lb. butternut squash
  • 3 tbsp. good olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 3 tsp. lime juice and 1 lime cut into wedges
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut the squash in half and place one half each on parchment lined cookie sheets.  Rub each half with olive oil .

Roast in the oven for 25 minutes.  Remove from the oven and turn over and bake another 25 minutes.  Make sure it is soft (tender). Carefully remove from the skin and mash with butter until smooth.

Spoon mixture back into the skin and add a few dollops of butter, a mere sprinkling of salt and pepper and now grate from fresh nutmeg over the tops.
