Cook Time:


  • 2 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter
  • 3 cup(s) butternut squash, about 2 pounds peeled and diced 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 pinch(s) salt
  • 1 pinch(s) pepper
  • 1/4 cup(s) flat-leaf parsley or I used Cilantro chopped
  • 1/3 cup(s) Walnuts chopped and toasted
  • 1.5 teaspoon(s) grated Lemon zest or I used lemon juice


  1. Heat the oil and butter in a 10-inch straight-sided sauté pan over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot and the butter has melted, add the squash, 1 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the squash is lightly browned and tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer the squash to a serving bowl. Add the parsley, walnuts, and lemon zest, and toss to combine. Serve immediately.
