This sweet plant-based side dish is a yummy addition to any meal.  It’s sweet, creamy and absolutely satisfying.  It makes a great dish for your vegan Thanksgiving menu too!  It’s a snap to make and you can prepare the rest of the meal while the squash is roasting.

Ingredients

1 medium butternut squash
½ cup melted Earth Balance Spread (Original)
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground cloves
½ cup Sugar in the Raw
1 cup pecan halves

Preparation

1. Spray Pam in a small baking dish. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Wash squash. Cut away the stem and top of the squash. Cut the squash in half lengthwise. Remove seeds completely. Place squash on the baking sheet. Brush ¼ of a cup of the melted Earth Balance on both halves. Sprinkle the cloves and cinnamon on the squash along with ½ of the sugar. Put the pecans in the open area of each squash. Pour the rest of the sugar over the pecans.

3. Put squash in the oven and bake until soft, about 1 hour.

4. When the squash is done, set it on a plate to cool. Remove the pecans and reserve them as a garnish. Spoon the squash into the baking dish. Whip it up a bit with a fork. Decorate the top with the roasted pecan halves. Pour the remaining Earth Balance on top of the squash and refrigerate until ready to heat and serve.
