Butternut Squash Pitas

with Lime Essential Oil


Prep Time:15

Cook Time:45 Minutes



1 butternut squash, split vertically and seeds removed

Extra-virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

Kosher salt, to taste

1 tablespoon maple syrup

4 pita breads (6-inch)

1 can black beans, rinsed and drained

Juice from 1 lime, divided

12 drops Lime essential oil

1/4 cup Greek yogurt

2 avocados, sliced

Garnish: chopped cilantro and toasted pumpkin seeds


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brush butternut squash halves with olive oil, and place flesh side down on a foil-lined baking sheet. Roast until tender, about 45 minutes. Set aside to let cool slightly, then mash in a bowl with cumin, chili powder, maple syrup, and salt.

2. Toss black beans with half of lime juice, drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt.

3. Whisk yogurt with other half of lime juice, Lime essential oil, and a pinch of salt. Add a little water if needed, until it’s a consistency that can be drizzled.

4. Spread butternut squash mixture on pitas and top with black beans and avocado slices. Drizzle with yogurt mixture and garnish with cilantro and pumpkin seeds.


For a warm pita, try baking the breads in the oven for 10 minutes until golden and crispy around the edges.
