Cooking with Apples: Apple Butternut Hash

Ingredients for 2-3 servings

  • 1 Butternut Squash, cut into 1/4 inch cubes
  • 1 or 2 Organic Fiji or Pink Lady Apples, cut into 1/4 inch cubes
  • 4 Green Onions, chopped
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Virgin Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Saffron
  • 1 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Fresh Thyme
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. Heat Coconut Oil in large cast iron pan
  2. Add white to light green portions of green onion to oil and cook for 3-5 on medium high, stir to avoid burning
  3. Add  Butternut Squash and spices and continue to cook on medium, medium-high heat stirring often to avoid burning.  Cook for about 15 minutes.  Squash should be a little firm, but easy to stick your fork into.
  4. Add apples and remaining green onion pieces and combine well with squash, lower heat and cook for another 5 minutes
  5. Serve and enjoy.  We usually pair this with Pork Chops or White Fish.
