Butternut squash with raisins, apples, and cinnamon is a delicious vegan recipe for any meal or festive occasion. Preparation time is about 15 minutes and cooking time is about 30 minutes in a microwave oven. Leftovers can be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator for a few days.

Butternut Squash with Raisins, Apples and Cinnamon
Wash the butternut squash.  Cut off the stem end and peel with a heavy duty vegetable peeler.  Cut out the bottom end and split the butternut squash lengthwise.  Scoop out the seeds from the cavity (If desired, save the seeds for toasting).  Slice the peeled butternut squash into 1/2 inch (1-1/2 cm.) cubes and place in a covered baking dish.

Wash and core the apples.  Cut into slices and cut the slices into 1/2 inch pieces.  Add to the baking dish.  Add the raisins and cinnamon.  Mix well, cover, and bake in a microwave oven set on "high", or in a conventional oven set at 350 degrees F. until the squash pieces are tender.  Mix about every 10 minutes during the baking process.
Squash and Rice
Remove from the oven and mix again.

Server and Enjoy!

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
