This easy vegetarian butternut squash casserole with apples would make an excellent vegetarian Thanksgiving side dish.

Peeling and seeding butternut squash does take a bit of effort, but you'll want to use fresh rather than frozen butternut squash in this recipe. For a vegan butternut squash casserole, you could use a dairy-free margarine instead of butter.

What You'll Need

  • 1 medium butternut squash, peeled and deseeded
  • 2 apples
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp vegan margarine or butter
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

How to Make It

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a square baking pan or casserole dish, about 8x8 inches.
  2. Using a food processor, slice the butternut squash and apples into thin pieces. Or, if you don't have a food processor, you can chop into small dices. Place the squash and apples into your prepared baking dish or casserole dish.
  3. Mash together the remaining ingredients with a fork until crumbly, and sprinkle over the apples and squash.
  1. Bake your butternut squash casserole in the oven for 45 to 55 minutes.
