Maple Roasted Butternut Squash and Apples with Pecans

I love roasting fall vegetables in maple syrup. The vegetables become so sweet and they are a perfect side dish to pretty much any main meal.

This side dish cannot be easier and faster to make. You mix a few ingredients in a baking dish and throw it in the oven until the vegetables are tender and delicious. What could be easier than that?

I paired this side dish with slow cooker barbecue pulled pork enchiladas. I ended up feeling almost bored while making dinner because both the main and side dishes were so easy to make.

When you need a quick but extremely nutritious side dish for dinner, this recipe is the one to make!

Maple Roasted Butternut Squash and Apples with Pecans:
(recipe slightly adapted from:

1 butternut squash, peeled and cubed
3 large apples, chopped
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup pecans, finely chopped
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°.
  2. Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. In the dish mix together the squash, apples and syrup.
  3. Bake for about 35-40 minutes, until the squash is tender. 
  4. Top with the pecans and bake for another 5 minutes.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
