Equipment

  • blender or food processor

Ingredients

  • 6 cups butternut squash peeled and diced, from ~1 medium squash
  • 2 tbsp olive oil plus more for drizzling
  • 8 ounces goat cheese at room temperature
  • 1 tbsp rosemary chopped, more to taste
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg more to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Toss the diced butternut squash in olive oil and transfer to the baking sheet. Roast for approximately 30 minutes or until the squash is tender.
  • Transfer the cooked squash to a blender or food processor and add the room temp goat cheese. Blend on medium speed for approximately one minute, until smooth. You may need to add a drizzle of olive oil or a few drops of water to promote blending. Add the nutmeg and rosemary and blend again for 15 to 20 seconds. 
  • Taste the dip and add more rosemary or nutmeg as desired. Transfer to a serving dish, and serve with veggie chips, seed crackers, or pita. Enjoy warm or chilled!

Notes

  • This tastes delicious warm or chilled. I especially like it with Mary's Gone Crackers Herb Crackers. So good!
  • Leftovers can be stored in airtight containers in the fridge for 3-5 days.
