Sometimes, the easiest way to make something dairy-free is to make a dish that doesn't normally require dairy in the first place. Many restaurants and recipes for roasted butternut squash choose to use butter, but there's no reason that the dish can't be prepared with a healthier oil option like olive oil or canola oil. This Roasted Butternut Squash with Cranberries Recipe is a simple seasonal dish that's prepared with olive oil, spices, butternut squash, apples, shallots, fresh ginger, and a touch of maple syrup, and it's delicious. Feel free to add chopped nuts and other dried fruits of your choice!
