Serves: 1 -2
Time: 20 minutes
1 butternut squash, cubed
1 tbsp. coconut oil
2 tbsp. honey or maple syrup
1 tbsp. coconut sugar
1 1/2 tbsp. tamari sauce
2 tsp. tapioca powder
1 tsp. white sesame seeds
1 tsp. black sesame seeds
1 spring onion, chopped
Add the butternut squash to a skillet and cover the bottom of the pan with water. Heat over medium-high until the squash is fork tender, 5 - 7 minutes.
Drain the water and set the squash aside. Heat the pan with 1 tbsp. coconut oil. Once hot add the squash back to the pan, searing the outside. Cook an additional 3 -5 minutes or until slightly browned and cooked fully through. Stir occasionally.
In a small bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients. Stir until well combined.
Add the sauce to the pan and stir. Cook an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened and the squash is evenly coated.
Transfer to a bowl and top with sesame seeds and spring onion.
Serve warm. Store leftovers in the fridge 1 day.
