  1. The coconut oil gives the squash a fantastic flavor. I like to use the spray oil because it is easy to apply and goes on lightly. Feel free to use your favorite coconut oil.
  2. Using a spatula turn the squash a few times as it cooks so that it will evenly brown.

From my home to yours, enjoy!
