Easy Butternut Squash w/Roasted Cumin
1 bag cubed, frozen butternut squash (defrosted)
1 medium red onion, sliced thinly
2 tbs cumin seeds
2 tbs olive oil
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
In saute pan, heat olive oil. Add cumin seeds, watching carefully so they don't burn. Add a pinch of turmeric and onions; saute for 3-4 minutes on medium heat. Add squash, salt and pepper. Cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Serving suggestion: serve with rice or naan, and plain yogurt.
Cook's note: It was my first time using frozen cubes of butternut squash. They didn't hold their shape as I would have liked for certain dishes, so best used for pureed dishes or soups.
