Pan-Fried Butternut Lager Squash

This is a simple recipe that really brings out the rich flavors of the squash. It makes a wonderful high-nutrient and high-protein accompaniment to the sausage recipe included here or to your favorite pork tenderloin or pork chop recipe. On a side note, this is one of the few ways my boys actually enjoy butternut squash.

  • 3 pounds butternut squash about 1 medium squash
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil melted
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt divided use
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cups cannellini beans cooked (or use one 15-ounce can, drained and rinsed)
  • 2/3 cup gluten-free lager beer about 6 ounces
  • 2 tablespoons fresh sage roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh tarragon roughly chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Slice the squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Drizzle the coconut oil over the flesh of the squash and sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon salt. Place cut-side down in a baking dish and roast until tender, 45-50 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. When cool enough to handle, remove the squash from the flesh and cut into bite-sized cubes.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the butter. Once melted, add the squash and beans and stir to combine. Cook for about 5 minutes. Then add the gluten-free lager and let simmer until the liquid is reduced by half.
  • Add the sage, tarragon, nutmeg, ¼ teaspoon salt, and pepper. Continue to cook for about 8 minutes more over medium heat until all of the butter/lager mixture is absorbed by the vegetables and beans. Serve.
