Miso-Glazed Butternut Squash with Spinach

| | Makes 4 servings


  • 1 large winter squash, such as butternut or acorn, peeled, halved, seeded, and cubed
  • 1 batch Easy Vegan Miso Sauce
  • 6 cups packed baby spinach

The earthy flavor of butternut squash pairs nicely with the tangy, salty flavor of miso in this colorful side dish. To make it a meal, try serving this vegan recipe over cooked pasta or brown rice.


1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.

2. Steam the squash in a double boiler or steamer basket for 10 to 12 minutes, or until tender. Place it in a large bowl and toss it with Easy Vegan Miso Sauce. Spread the squash mixture in a 9 x 13-inch baking dish and bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

3. While the squash bakes, steam the spinach in a large pot for 4 to 5 minutes, or until wilted.

4. To serve, divide the spinach among 4 individual plates and top with the glazed squash.
