Haylie Duff's Spicy Butternut Squash with Lemon Creme Frache

Serves 4-6

Originally aired

INGREDIENTS
  • For the Spice Mixture (use approx 1 heaping tablespoon, save the rest):
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon Splenda brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • For the Lemon Zest Crme Frache:
  • 2 tablespoons crme frache
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice (I generally just do a big squeeze)
  • A small hit of lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 5 cups cubed butternut squash
  • 1 tablespoon EVOO Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle-adobo sauce
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 small container crme frache
PREPARATION

Preheat oven to 350F. In a small bowl, combine spices for the spice mixture. In another small bowl, combine ingredients for the Lemon Zest Crme Frache. (The Crme Frache can be skipped all together, or substituted with goat cheese!)

Toss the butternut squash with oil and 1 tablespoon of the spice mixture. Bake for 20-30 minutes depending on the size of the cubes. Toss halfway through cook time. Remove from oven and toss butternut squash in adobo sauce (use 2 tablespoons for more heat). Drizzle with some of the Lemon Zest Crme Frache.
