Paleo Oven Roasted Spiced Butternut with Fresh Coriander

25 April 2016

Butternut is hands down my absolute favourite vegetable. It is so incredibly versatile, and its natural sweetness makes it perfect for adding great flavour to soups, salads or to enjoy on its own. This is such a simple recipe to prepare, and I make it regularly. I especially love this recipe because all of the ingredients used here are very rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Butternut is also an excellent source of immune-supportive vitamin A, vitamin C, dietary fibre, vitamin B6, manganese, potassium and vitamin B2. Even better, butternut has been shown to help regulate blood sugar levels! So eat up and enjoy!
