This Paleo Roasted Butternut Squash Stuffing Recipe is so good that you can make it and serve it as a side, as a non-grain stuffing for Thanksgiving or my personal favorite take the leftovers and heat it up the next morning as a hash and serve it with a sunny side up egg with the yoke oozing over it. This recipe is so versatile, so easy to prepare and most importantly so delicious that you will wish butternut squash is in season year round.
Ingredients
  • 1 medium butternut squash; peeled and chopped into 1 inch cubes (about 2lbs)
  • 1 large yellow onion; peeled and chopped into slices (I always add more onions)
  • 4 oz of chorizo; case removed and crumbled
  • 3-4 garlic cloves; minced
  • 3-4 tablespoons of coconut oil (or your another fat of your choice)
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Peel, deseed and dice your butternut squash into 1 inch cubes. If you are a Costco member then all you have to do is dump your 2lb of organic already cut butternut squash on a lined cookie sheet and your preparation time is cut in half alone.
  3. Chop and slice your onion and place on top of your butternut squash. I really like to double my onions because I like the caramelized texture the onions get when roasted so more is better in my book but it is certainly up to you.
  4. Mince your garlic and add it on top of the chopped onion and butternut squash.
  5. Add a hefty dose of salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Melt your 3-4 tablespoons of coconut oil in the microwave and then add it to your vegetables and stir and mix evenly.
  7. Bake your mixture in the oven for 40 minutes.
  8. At the 40 minute mark, take out your roasted vegetables and stir. Take out your chorizo and remove the casing and crumble your chorizo around the cookie sheet. Again, more is better in my opinion.
  9. Place the roasted butternut squash and chorizo stuffing back into the oven for another 8-10 minutes to cook the chorizo.
  10. Take it out and devour. You will love the extra flavor this chorizo gives the dish.
