  • 1 whole-wheat baguette, cut into 1/2-inch slices (about 20 slices)

Nutritional Guidelines (per serving)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Melt 2 tablespoons Country Crock Plant Butter. Brush one side of each baguette slice with melted Plant Butter. Arrange baguette slices on baking sheet. Bake until crisp, about 8 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking.
  2. Heat remaining Plant Butter in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add squash and season with salt and pepper if desired. Cook, stirring occasionally, until squash is tender, about 8 minutes.
  3. Stir in cranberries and pomegranate seeds. Cook until heated through, about 2 minutes. Stir in maple syrup and sage.
  4. To serve, spoon squash mixture on baguette slices and garnish with sage leaves.
For easier preparation you can purchase precut squash in the produce section of your supermarket. If using a whole butternut squash, to easily cut squash, cut 2 or 3 slits in squash and microwave 1 to 2 minutes to soften. Let stand until cool enough to handle. Then peel and cut squash as desired.
