Ingredients:

    • 1½ lb. Butternut Squash, peeled
    • 1 tsp. Olive Oil
    • Salt & Pepper
    • 4 Pieces Whole Wheat Bread (or your favorite bread)

      2. Take your peeled Butternut Squash and cut a ½” thick slice out of the bulbous bottom, width-wise. Scoop the seeds out of this slice as well as the rest of the squash.
      3. Continue cutting the squash into ½” thick slices and place them on the baking sheet.
      4. Take the olive oil (with your fingers or a brush) and spread a very thin layer on top of each squash slice. Sprinkle roughly a ¼-1/2 tsp. of sea salt over the slices along with some black pepper.
      5. Bake for 30 minutes.

    3. Carefully pile the sprouts onto each squash base, then the red onion slices and tomato. Top with the remaining bread and enjoy!
