Roasted Butternut Squash

1 large butternut squash

1 t ground cinnamon
1/4 t ground nutmeg
sea salt & cracked pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Peel, remove seeds and cut squash into bit sized pieces.
Place squash in a large bowl & mix with all ingredients.
Transfer to a casserole dish.

Enjoy all the naturally gluten-free health benefits of butternut squash!  Butternut squash is a rich source of dietary fiber, and is high in vitamin A.  Better yet, these squash contain iron, zinc, copper, calcium, phosphorous and potassium, which is important for bone health which is critical for Celiacs.

So, roast, bake, sautee or puree a nice warm, healthy, naturally gluten-free butternut squash this season.
